GIRLS' EDUCATION
IN AFGHANISTAN

“Ensure their voices are heard and that we are creating a stronger, just and brighter tomorrow for the girls of Afghanistan”

Afghanistan has the highest gender disparity in education in the world. Girls education is highly undervalued as a result of pervasive gender inequalities.

Our resolve in supporting primary and secondary education for girls grows even stronger as we bear witness to the ongoing turmoil and conflict that has resulted in the last few months. We cannot turn away.

The Taliban are making sweeping advances across Afghanistan and so for us it is now even more essential to support those who are most vulnerable in the community, by ensuring we continue to provide girls with an education.

We are in need of broader global community assistance to ensure our continued commitment to this cause – to offer hope and reassurance to the girls in Afghanistan who’s voices are being silenced.

Abdara Girls School

The Abdara Girls School was established in 2003 by Mahboba’s Promise . Prior to its establishment, no girl in Abdara Village was attending school. In 2018, 350 girls  from the village were enrolled in grades one through to twelve  – with your help and sponsorship.

The girls in Afghanistan need our support now more than ever. We are determined to protect their education and their future. To ensure their voices are heard and that we are creating a stronger, just and brighter tomorrow.

We have seen first hand that education is the key to creating the future leaders of Afghanistan.

Girls who have the opportunity to attend school are empowered with skills which are of value to their community, allowing them to become agents of their own change and address the challenges women and girls face in their communities.

Sponsorship Program

The program sponsors Afghan girls, orphans and widows and does not discriminate by providing support to all ethnic groups. We work with individuals in all regions in which we operate, including Kabul, Panjshir, Parwan, Takhar and Badakhshan.

SPONSOR A GIRL'S EDUCATION

$40/MONTH

This program helps girls of school age, providing them with the materials and support they need to attend school. As safety for girls is a big concern in traditional Afghan communities, the sponsorship also allows Mahboba’s Promise to ensure a secure learning environment.

SPONSOR An orphan

$50/MONTH

After years of war and poverty, many Afghan children have become destitute. Whether both parents have died or they lack adequate care at home, this program aims to provide orphan children with greater opportunity, care and support. 

SPONSOR A WIDOW

$60/MONTH

Widows are of the most vulnerable group in Afghanistan. Often caring for several children, widows have no way of earning an income. This program provides those most in need with food, medicine and vocational training.

How Sponsorship Helps

The Sponsorship Program works by meeting the basic human needs such as shelter, clothes, education, food and medicine. It continues to care for the individual while seeking ways for the beneficiary to eventually become self-reliant. This includes education and training. It is vital that women and children supported through Mahboba’s Promise become self-sufficient as opposed to reliant on welfare provisions. Through access to education, they can have a better future.

Health

Without adequate Healthcare, women in Afghanistan risk losing their own lives and the lives of their children, particularly during childbirth.

Education

Education has the power to end poverty. Educating girls and boys will pave the way to a brighter future for all of Afghanistan.

Safe Drinking Water

Providing communities with clean drinking water is one of the first steps to ending extreme poverty. 

Food and Agriculture

Nutrition in Afghanistan is among the worst in the world. Our focus on food and sustainable agricultural practices ensures a healthy diet for disadvantaged women and children.

Income Generation

Widows, being one of the most vulnerable groups in Afghanistan, struggle to earn an income to support their families. Providing Widows and young adults with training ensures they are able to support themselves and their families.

Where Your Money Goes

All funds raised through the sponsorship program are pooled together and distributed in line with budgets set for each community. This model is used to maximize effectiveness and ensure equity among all individuals in the program. It is used to support the living costs of the individual being sponsored (e.g. shelter, clothes, food or medicines) as well as community development programs (e.g. vegetable gardens, wells, training).

Recipient Selection Process

The following processes outline how we assess and ensure that we are helping the most vulnerable members in society:

  1. Application: We identify those most in need through referrals from government and non-governmental agencies, and referrals from local community leaders.

  3. Survey: We corroborate details of individuals’ or families’ life stories in order to accurately identify level of need.
  4. Decision made by board members
