VOLUNTEER: Do you have a passion or skill you would like to employ to make the world a better place?   We want to meet you and discuss ways to put your talents to use! Please contact The Initiative.


At The Initiative To Educate Afghan Women, we know how important a loving home away from home is for the success of our young scholars. We rely on a carefully screened network of host families to share in the ordinary course of a young woman’s journey through higher education.

The Host Family Committee of our Board of Directors is available to help connect host families to our students and to each other in a comprehensive and loving network of support.

If you live near one of our partner college campuses and would like to know more about being a host family, we want to hear from you! Please contact Christian Wistehuff to learn more.
