Fyza SHE-Education– Let’s Educate Her was launched in November 2021 by Humayoon Chakhansuri to overcome barriers and provide education to Afghan girls through an online platform. Currently, the program offers free classes to girls with internet access. The program covers science subjects from grades 7 to 12, English, and Computers. The program serves 200 girls, with a waiting list of more than 100. Initially run by volunteers, Humayoon wants to hire teachers and pay for internet access to make the program sustainable.  

Speaker: Humayoon Chakhansuri completed his MBA as a Fulbright Scholar at The University of Akron.  He is part of the Global Ties Akron family.  He is currently serving as an Operations Officer at the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group.  Humayoon and his family were forced to leave Afghanistan due to the collapse of the Afghan Republic on August 15, 2021.  As he witnessed the erosion of women’s fundamental rights and the right to education, he decided to act and create a virtual learning platform. In addition to the school, he raised funds to help 50 low-income families during the harsh winter months.
