Afghanistan's first rural college for young women--the Zabuli Technical College

This is an enlightened effort to bring higher education to young women in a rural setting where the notion of "going off to college" is culturally difficult.

Some the graduating student wrote essays on the importance was progressing to college.  See the Telegraph to read them, or the Marie Claire blog.

The new two-year technical college is a follow-on project to a impressive local school that has garnered the support of village fathers and mothers. The story of the school is told in a new documentary from Principle Pictures--"What Tomorrow Brings"--that will be premier later this year.  The teaser is here.

Read about the two year college initiative and think about digging into your pocket book to make a contribution.  The fund raiser ends in mid-July 2015.
