"In a country where the development gap between urban and rural areas is becoming wider by the day, the concept of SOLA, a Kabul boarding school for girls from the provinces is a brilliant solution! Those girls can pursue their education in a warm and safe environment, build up the skills needed to excel in university, and then hopefully return to their homes to share their knowledge with the next generation."

--Afghanistan's First Lady Rula Ghani
