Afghan Women's Internet Cafe
Mountain2Mountain in Breckenridge, CO by Shannon Galpin
Working with the young Afghan women that opened the first women's internet cafe in Kabul we plan to open an internet cafe in Central Afghanistan open to women and run by women. This access allows not only for information to be downloaded, but for citizen journalism, social media based activism, and witness violence to be uploaded and shared globally. Allowing the voices of Afghan women to be heard.

We have completed or have ongoing programs throughout Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the US. We funded construction of 2 girls schools in Pakistan, set up kindergartens and computer labs in Afghanistan, supported graffiti art project with young Afghan artists in Kabul, and are currently in process of building a school for the deaf in Kabul.
