Solution for Afghanistan War and Terrorism: Education and Jobs.




Push Play to hear Hassina Sherjan speak about education and creating jobs in Afghanistan to resolve war and its scars.

A native Afghan, Hassina Sherjan educates not only women in Afghanistan but also boys in order to help end terrorism, rebuild the economy and heal the country after 3 generations of conflict. With a 90% illiteracy rate, the challenge is great, yet she has built classrooms in 19 provinces for the marginalized women, girls and boys who otherwise would not have the opportunity of education. The current Afghanistan government has laws that still prevent people over 10 years old from joining school, and due to the war in Afghanistan many have not had access.

Hassina is actively looking to expand access to education by building more classrooms in more locations, recruiting and developing teachers. However, the aid she has been receiving through foreign governments must be diversified and expanded to address the depth of the problem. Although she currently has over 3000 students who are rapidly progressing and entering college, that is a small portion of the uneducated population of Afghanistan due to the years of conflict and outdated laws.

Her intent is to grow the business to include cotton production and to manufacture internationally distributed products.
