Project Name: “Empowering women in education and train them as leaders and change makers.”

Sohaila is a young peacebuilder living in Afghanistan and founder of the Young Emerging Leaders Program. For her SDG Micro-Project, Sohaila implemented a Global Citizen Mentorship Program for 20 female high-school students, who were matched with 20 mentors from different backgrounds. Sohaila addressed the difference in quality of education based on gender that results from a low development of the education system. The goal was to empower girls and train them as leaders and change-makers. The project also created a network helping students strengthen their interpersonal, communication and leadership skills.
