Renewing Our Commitment to Educating Afghanistan's Future Leaders
Welcome from Our Executive Director - Christian Wistehuff
I was honored nearly two years ago to join The Initiative To Educate Afghan Women in the important work they undertook ten years ago to create a strong and diverse network of women in Afghanistan helping other women as Afghanistan’s future women leaders.
Immediately thereafter, several members of the Board of Directors and I drafted a roadmap and timeline for The Initiative's path forward. As a result of the most ambitious program of projects launched in the ten year history of The Initiative, you have seen a new Initiative refocused on identifying bright young women in Afghanistan interested in training in the United States for careers needed to advance peace and prosperity in their home country. In the next months, you also will see new ways of communicating with our supporters and even more examples 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 ripple through the world - one exceptional mind and generous heart at a time.
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 chapters of The Initiative unfold.
