A Safe Ride to School for Girls in Afghanistan

In 2008, several girls attending the Mirwais Mena School were attacked by men with acid. Despite the danger, the school stayed open. Donations from New York Times readers helped purchase a bus and pay a driver so the students could have secure rides to and from class. The bus has changed may girls' lives, but some cannot afford to use it.

Help provide a month of rides to and from Mirwais Mena School for brave Afghan girls!

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
