February is #BlackHistoryMonth in the United States. Here is a little bit about how the month was first started 95 years ago:

In 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson launched the annual February observance of "Negro History Week," which became "Black History Month" in 1976. He chose February for the observance because it was the birth month of Frederick Douglass, a former slave who became a national leader of the abolitionist movement, and President Abraham Lincoln, who succeeded in abolishing slavery.

Join the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC to celebrate Black History Month with virtual events throughout February:

Wonderful initiative, Aiman! #ExchangeOurWorld

“I believe it’s high time to educate young girls and make self-defense training as the first line of defense against any kind of abuse. It is time to speak up because this is not just a problem for women, it concerns both you and me”.

Global UGRAD alumna Aiman Khan has taken the initiative to educate young girls of KP about different forms of abuse and how to protect themselves in a difficult situation.
In an awareness session organized by Aiman last month, students of primary and secondary schools participated in self-defense training. She is a final year student of Psychology at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Women University, Peshawar and attended a semester at the University of Northern Iowa as part of the Global UGRAD Program.

We love to see alumni building leadership skills and promoting the value of diversity within a community! Way to go, Aymen! #ExchangeOurWorld

To develop skills and knowledge that can help lead a community where diversity and individual differences are valued, Global UGRAD alumna Aymen Bashir attended Inclusive Leadership Conference at Western Carolina University earlier this year. The conference focused on inclusive leadership and guided attendees through four core competencies: self-consciousness, cultural intelligence, commitment, and cognition.

“During the sessions, I was able to voice my concerns about being a woman and a leader. When you are a woman, your leadership is labeled as bossy, and it can be seen as something negative.” Aymen found it empowering to speak to other emerging women leaders and learn how they address this stigma.

Global Exchanges, which has over 2,300 active Facebook followers, has connected cultural exchange ambassadors from over 20 countries through live interview sessions.

Happy 70th Anniversary to the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan, our partner for the last 10 years! We are grateful for the work you do to support educational and cultural exchange between Pakistan and the U.S. #ExchangeOurWorld #Partners4Prosperity

Through an agreement signed between the governments of Pakistan and the United States on September 23, 1950, a bi-national commission, the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP), was formed to promote mutual understanding between the two countries. Since its inception 70 years ago, USEFP has assisted Pakistani students in fulfilling their dreams of studying in the USA and bringing American scholars to Pakistan.

More than 8,000 alumni of USEFP managed programs are working in diverse fields across Pakistan and the world to address global challenges.

Follow #USEFP70 throughout September to learn about our history, participants' transformative journeys, and achievements of our alumni.

“I believe that women’s fight for basic rights can only be won by understanding the importance of financial freedom.”

Spring 2020 alumna Alishba has long been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights in Pakistan, championing the rights of sexual assault survivors and pledging to create lasting change for women in Lahore. As one of the founding members and Chief Operations Officer of CHAAP, a Lahore-based women’s rights organization that serves to empower and educate women around the world, Alishba has helped create educational materials to teach women about financial and social freedoms. #ExchangeOurWorld

“The university staff told me that I’m a pioneer here as a visually impaired student.... It is a proud moment for me, my family, and the university.” Read Arisha's story. #ExchangeOurWorld

When Global UGRAD alumna Arisha arrived at SUNY-Plattsburgh, she discovered an office specifically dedicated to supporting students with disabilities—something that did not exist at her university in Pakistan. The office, along with the Global Education Office, provided the support Arisha needed to fully participate on campus, excel academically, and develop leadership skills for her career.
