Aid Afghanistan for Education (AAE)
"When we educate a woman, we educate a family. Unless we educate the Afghan population, there will be no peace."
~Hassina Sherjan, Executive Director, Aid Afghanistan for Education.
Devastation, war, and violence in Afghanistan created a regressive, fundamentalist education system that prevented modern education for children, and denied opportunities for women to work and fend for their families. We believe education is the only vehicle to a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan. Every Afghan has the right to be educated, create opportunity, and add value to their country’s future. Since 2003, AAE has established 13 schools in 9 provinces that educate marginalized Afghans deprived of an education during the years of conflict in the region—or do not have access to a formal education system. Currently, 3,000 female and 104 male students are attending AAE schools.
Mines Advisory Group
A world where men, women and children can build peaceful and prosperous futures, free from the impact of armed violence and conflict. Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an international organization that saves lives and builds futures through the removal and destruction of landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO), and other weapons remaining after conflict. Since 1989, MAG has worked in over 35 countries and was co-laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. MAG's leading priority is to protect the lives and well-being of the most vulnerable individuals in contaminated areas by providing risk education, and removing deadly weapons. What MAG Clears
