It has been a devastated few days in the life of so many Afghans, so much loss as a result of this horrific attack. So many devastated families who will never see their daughters again, 68 dreams were shattered. This is beyond sadness, targeting young girl students, this is an attack on the future of Afghanistan. The savages terrorists clearly seek to destroy the achievements that the Afghan gained in the past 20 years, especially girls.

We at the Ayenda Foundation remain committed to continue our work to educate girls in Bamiyan and elsewhere in the country to reach their fullest potential.

This is a powerful image of courage and determination, it says it all...she is holding to her books while running for her life.

August 22, 2020

Ayenda School is so happy to report that our school has reopened today after the prolonged five-months shutdown due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. It is so heartwarming for us to see our eager and bright students are back in their classrooms with big smiles and sharp minds.

We are so grateful to our incredibly devoted staff and teachers for working so hard to make this possible by following the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health and Education and taking personal initiatives. We have been taking all the required and necessary measurement to make sure everyone stays safe. We have been providing hand washing stations and mandatory masks, each students temperature is checked before entering the school with the new thermal thermometers. We are allocating certain number of students per classroom to keep the social distancing requirement in place and the classrooms become disinfected every day.

Currently we have 364 students, combination of boys and girls. Due to social distancing requirements and space difficulties, unfortunately we are not able to reopen our kindergarten class this year and we may have to delay some of our Girls Empowerment Classes as well. It has always been our goal to provide safe education environment for our students.

Again, we would like to thank all of our supporters for their ongoing backing and for staying committed to our mission of educating the young generation of Afghans to build peace and live in a self-reliant Afghanistan. We couldn’t have come this far without your support. We remain grateful and count on your continued support to bring our journey to an end in this challenging time.

قرار نیست فرزندان تکلیف را به بهترین شکل و بدون اشتباه انجام دهد،

بگذارید بچه ها اشتباه کند چون اشتباه بخشی از مسیر یاد گرفتن است.

Ayenda Foundation celebrated its 13th Annual Benefit Dinner at the Danish Embassy on May 30th, hosted by H. E. Ambassador Lars Gert Lose and Mrs. Ulla Ronberg. The Evening started with a warm welcoming remark by Ambassador Lose, highlighting Denmark’s Key support for Afghanistan. Mrs. Shamim Jawad, Founder of the Ayenda Foundation thanked Ambassador Lose and the government of Denmark for their support for Afghanistan. Mrs. Jawad said, "we are grateful for Denmark’s ongoing commitment to support growth, employment, education, democracy building and human rights in Afghanistan”.
Mrs. Jawad updated guest on Ayenda's achievements, she stated that "currently we have 20 children in our pre-school program. As you might be aware, pre-school is not offered through the public-school system in Afghanistan. However, we believe that preparing children for first grade education is critical in order to develop early literacy and learning skills.

This year, Ayenda School has been registered with the Ministry of Education as a Middle School. We are taking this expansion one step at the time by adding only one new grade each year, we added 7th grade to our school this year. At the moment, we have 21 students in our 7th grade, and we admitted a total of 97 new students this year. In total, we have 306 students in our school. This is a tremendous achievement for us, and it would not have been possible without your support. We are also proud that the Ayenda School offers mixed primary education, as we believe it is important for boys and girls to study together to establish mutual respect. Undeniably, when you teach boys at a young age to respect girls and women, it will stay with them for life".

Inspired by the resilience of this Afghan woman. "My life goal was to get admitted to the University, I didn't want to left behind".

This year the International Women's Day focus is "Press for Progress".
"Press for Progress" on the ongoing global movements for women's rights, gender equality, justice, equal pay, and political participation.
"Press for Progress" on new campaigns such as "MeToo" and "TimesUp" to end all types of harassment in the workplace.

More than ever, there is a need to "Press for Progress" in Afghanistan through education and advocacy, to let the Afghan women realize their full potential and to build a more equal and peaceful society.

Happy International Women's Day to all my fellow Afghan women, we are so proud of all your accomplishments. Stay stong and continue your good work!
