Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation is a nonprofit organization that empowers young women and girls in Afghanistan through community-based education in the district of Deh’Subz. Founded on the knowledge that education is key to positive, peaceful change for current and future generations, the foundation’s K-12 school provides free education to 625 girls and is the #1 private school in the district. The adjacent post-secondary midwifery institute provides marketable skills while helping to improve maternal-fetal outcomes.
