Razia's Ray of Hope



Razia JanRazia’s Ray of Hope, founded by humanitarian Razia Jan, provides exemplary, free education to more than 625 girls in grades K-12 at the Zabuli Education Center in Deh’Subz, Afghanistan, and 22 young women at the adjacent Razia Jan Institute. 

We embrace and promote education as the key to positive, peaceful change for current and future generations, empowering girls and young women to work toward bright futures in their own villages and beyond. Our schools are celebrated symbols of progress and the advancement of women — and are the pride of the conservative community we serve.

Join us: Invest in the sustainable change that is already changing the world we share.



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.
