Education Is Change

Razia’s Ray of Hope empowers girls and young women through community-based education in Deh’Subz, Afghanistan. Our nonprofit organization and schools were founded in the knowledge that education is the key to positive, global change for current and future generations.

Founder and president Razia Jan, humanitarian and CNN Top 10 Hero, has worked for decades to build connections between Afghans and Americans while improving the lives of girls and young women in Afghanistan through education and opportunity.

What Tomorrow Brings, the award-winning documentary from Principle Pictures, tells the story of Razia Jan and the Zabuli Education Center — where students and teachers are making possible what was once unthinkable.
