Education Can End Child Marriage

What do you imagine for your daughter or sister's future? Will she be an engineer, a doctor, or an astronaut? We encourage our girls to try on new identities and follow their dreams through childhood. What if that time of discovery was cut short by child marriage?  What if those same girls were forced to marry, leave school, and become mothers before they turn 18?

Your Legacy, HER Future

If you are interested in creating a lasting legacy that supports peace through education, then please join our Legacy Society. This society was created in service to our donors who are passionate about supporting girls' education in Central Asia. Membership in the society not only supports our cause, but it also benefits the donor.
Volunteers Needed:

For the months of November and December we are looking for 25 committed volunteers to help spread peace through education using the stories of our annual Journey of Hope magazine.


Central Asia Institute (CAI) works with communities in remote areas of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan, to promote education, especially for girls. At home and abroad, CAI is committed to sharing its expert knowledge with the public.  Together we can cultivate peace, nurture hope, and change the world, one child at a time.
