Renewing Our Commitment to Educating Afghanistan's Future Leaders
Welcome from Our New Executive Director - Christian Wistehuff
I am thrilled to join the staff of The Initiative To Educate Afghan Women in the important work they and their dedicated Board of Directors undertook ten years ago to help create Afghanistan’s future women leaders.
Recently, members of the Board of Directors and staff drafted an ambitious roadmap for the critical path ahead. As a result, in the coming months, you will see a new Initiative refocused on identifying bright young women in Afghanistan interested in training in the United States for careers desperately needed to advance peace and prosperity in their home country. You also will see new ways of communicating with existing and potential new contributors and the beginning of an engaged alumnae network both at home and abroad.
The young women who have benefited from the Initiative over the past ten years - and those who have yet to embark on their journey with us - are inspirational examples of how change can be made in the world.
It is my honor to work - with your help - toward making the dreams of these extraordinary young women possible. Thank you for all you have done and all you are able to do in the future as the next chapter of the Initiative begins.
