In 2020, the world and our G100 community lost two prolific leaders that inspired generations – through education and example – they made what seemed the impossible – possible. To honor these Visionaries, we are establishing a scholarship fund.
Our first G100 Inspiritus Campaign will support the extraordinary work of another member of our G100 community, Sima Samar.
She is a doctor for the poor, an educator of the marginalized and defender of the human rights of all in Afghanistan. She has established and nurtured the Shuhada Organization that has operated more than one hundred schools and 15 clinics and hospitals dedicated to providing education and healthcare, particularly focusing on women and girls. She served in the Interim Administration of Afghanistan and established the first-ever Ministry of Women’s Affairs. Since 2002, she has chaired the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission that promote and protect human rights and holds human rights violators accountable, a commitment that has put her own life at great risk.
The G100 Foundation is developing a grassroots global campaign to support Sima Samar and the Shuhada Organization so they can continue to educate women in Afghanistan and Afghan refugee community in Pakistan
Our scholarship fund will enable these women to attend the Gowharshad University and become empowered through knowledge. It will also make possible what seemed impossible due to their environmental and economic circumstances.
