This campaign would not be what it is without the active commitment of two associate members of the MMM Network, the Farkhunda Trust for Afghan Women’s Education and Mothers For Peace. They have been instrumental in mobilising mothers and in getting the support of the very people that can help realise a better tomorrow for Afghanistan.
“UNICEF is proud to support your work to help ensure that every girl in Afghanistan can realize her right to education – particularly the most marginalised girls. Education is one of the best investments we can make in a girl’s future, and translates into social and economic prosperity – for girls themselves, and for countries recovering from COVID-19.”
UN Geneva, Human Rights Council - MMM reasserts the importance of every woman and girl 's economic, social and cultural rights and calls for the international community to mobilize.
August 15th saw the collapse of the Afghan government and a return to power by the Taliban. At MMM, like much of the rest of the world, we were shocked at the speed with which change came about.
Our campaign, aimed at supporting Afghan women’s pressing request to a continued right to education, passed two important milestones at the European Parliament recently.
