Razia's Ray of Hope


Your Support Changes Lives

Nadia enrolled at the Zabuli Education Center in 2008.
Look where she is now: Saving lives on the frontline of community health care.


With the help of global citizens like you, we've achieved transformative change:

  • Educating ~1,000 girls in kindergarten through college.
  • Enabling our graduates to work and support their families, creating a positive economic and social impact on their community as teachers, midwives, and shop owners.
  • Certifying midwives who are now improving health outcomes in the community of Deh’Subz and beyond.
  • Helping Afghan families realize the importance of education. We now have a three-year waiting list for kindergarten!

Help us continue to empower girls through education by raising $300,000 before Thanksgiving! Donations and sponsorships both count toward our goal. Thank you!


Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation empowers girls and young women through community-based education in Deh’Subz, Afghanistan, a rural district of Kabul Province. 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.
