#RaiseAPen answers the call of mothers in Afghanistan to safeguard and advance the right to education for their daughters at this critical juncture in their history. What mothers in Afghanistan want is for the international community to be aware that this right is endangered by current political uncertainties.
MMM, as part of its mission, is answering this call through the awareness raising #RaiseAPen campaign.
