Our New Name

We are delighted to announce a new name for our organization. Ayni Education International is now Sahar. Sahar means dawn in Dari, the most common language spoken in Northern Afghanistan. Our leadership team and our Afghan advisors all agree – this is a new day for girls in Afghanistan. Sahar will continue to provide education for Afghan girls – building schools, creating computer centers, and supporting teacher training – while also seeking opportunities to rise up to the challenges always present when great change is undertaken.


Gohar Khaton Artwork

The winners of the artist competition learned  how to install their artwork on a large scale. They first attended a workshop on artwork installation, and took their winning designs and painted them on the walls of Gohar Khaton. Below are photos of the artists hard at work and some of the artwork that will be displayed on the walls of the school.
