Sahar is excited to announce that we are the recipient of a $50,000 grant from Dining For Women for our Early Marriage Prevention Initiative.
Chosen from 135 applicants, Sahar’s grant will go towards the second phase of our Early Marriage Prevention Initiative. The second phase will impact 500 girls attending two schools in the northern region of Afghanistan, Balkh Province. The Early Marriage Prevention Program integrates conversations about early marriage and education within the schools and with community leaders, solidifying the long-term importance of educating girls within the cultural framework and teaching girls their rights to not marry and stay in school.
The Dining for Women mission states that, through collective giving circles, the organization inspires, educates and engages people to invest in grassroots programs that make a meaningful difference for women and girls living in extreme poverty in developing countries.
We at Sahar cannot think of a partner that is more mission-aligned. Thank you so much for investing in global girls empowerment!
