#SheInspiresMe: Friba and Farial from Afghanistan

Friba convinced her husband to continue his education by telling him she would refuse to marry him if he didn’t study. He is now a teacher.

“Uneducated women and girls are like the blind until they learn something,” says Friba, the mother of five and current program participant in Afghanistan.


A passionate advocate for education, Friba has aspirations for her five children to be educated and successful in school. Her oldest son is already attending university, and her oldest daughter has graduated from high school and is awaiting the results of her university entrance exams.

Friba dreams of seeing her daughter attend university and one day and become a teacher like her father.  Her daughter, Farial, is also enrolled in the Women for Women International training program. Farial is gaining practical skills that will help her earn an income to support her family while she continues to make plans for her future.
