At AGFAF we believe:

  • that supporting the higher education of bright young Afghans, primarily women, empowers them to become change agents for their country and our world.
  • that to be empowered requires education beyond classroom learning,  education that AGFAF provides by supporting student-led projects that develop real-world skills.
  • that once empowered, our scholars elevate the lives of the Afghan people through the sustainable AGFAF supported projects they develop and lead.
