Building Their Future: How Girls’ Schools in Afghanistan Are Preventing Early Marriage
Global Washington member, Sahar Education, is getting ready to build a new boarding school for girls in Afghanistan, a complement to its successful early marriage prevention program. The school is intended to support rural families in Afghanistan’s Balkh Province seeking safer educational options for their daughters.
Sahar’s team worked closely with Seattle architectural firm Miller Hull on the design, which incorporates low-tech climate solutions to store and release solar energy throughout the day, offering cost-savings, as well as greater comfort throughout the year.
Speakers will include Sahar Executive Director, Ginna Brelsford; Miller Hull Founding Partner, David Miller; and Sahar Fellow, Shogofa Amini.
Lunch will be provided.
