The dangers that women and girls are facing in Afghanistan are heartbreaking. Since June, more than 120,000 children have been displaced by the conflict, and women and girls are especially vulnerable during this current urgent moment. Through our work with the Girls Opportunity Alliance, we are committed to educating and empowering girls and young women around the world.
