Our advocacy in action.
We've curated a selection of videos so you can hear from our students, and from Shabana, in their own words.
First, we bring you inside our Kabul campus, courtesy of National Geographic.
Next, we take you to Washington, D.C. for Shabana's presentation at TedxWomen: "Dare to Educate Afghan Girls."
In 2016, Shabana was awarded an honorary doctorate from SOAS University of London -- click below to watch her acceptance speech.
