On October 11th, Women Leaders of Tomorrow held another in its series of online Chai & Chat events to raise awareness about Afghan girls’ rights to education. Two amazing young Afghan women speakers, Khatira Daryabi and Manizha Azizi were invited to speak and share their stories. The audience found their stories inspiring.

These discussion are crucial to take place because child marriage is on the rise in Afghanistan. UN Women suggests having access to education is a key factor in preventing child marriages, and empowering women to develop their careers and join the economy.
