Position Announcement: Executive Director

Sahar is seeking Executive Director candidates whose passion and commitment to our mission is informed by a fluency in Afghan culture and issues impacting Afghan women and girls. Learn more >

When girls are educated, communities are stronger, safer, healthier and more affluent. An educated girl can change the world—but right now too many aren’t getting the chance they deserve to reach their full potential. Many girls in Afghanistan are still far behind in their access to education due to years of Taliban rule, stigma against girls’ education, the lack of available facilities and early marriage or motherhood keeping girls from school. 

Learn more about the work Sahar has done in Afghanistan to allow more girls to go to school. Read about our methods to repair schools that are no longer viable, and to build schools in communities that need them, pioneering the use of sustainable design for buildings in Afghanistan. Hear from the girls and women who have graduated from our computer training programs and teacher training programs. And explore the unique methods we’re using to prevent early marriage to keep more Afghan girls in school, longer.

You can change the life of a girl and her community.
