Our first 25 new sponsors will receive a copy of the inspirational children's book, Razia's Ray of Hope, One Girl's Dream of an Education, signed by its award-winning author Elizabeth Suneby and CNN Hero Razia Jan. This beautifully illustrated book is based on the true story of a girl in Afghanistan who desperately wants an education and convinces the men in her family to allow her to attend school. Share Razia's important, powerful message with a young reader in your life!

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.
