Our Story

Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation: Creating Life-Changing Opportunities Through Education

Razia Jan, a native Afghan and award winning humanitarian, is the founder and president of Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that improves the lives of young women and girls through community-based education in the rural district of Deh’Subz, Afghanistan. In March 2008, Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation opened its flagship program, the Zabuli Education Center, an all-girl K-12 school, with 100 students. Today the school is thriving, providing free, exceptional education to 640 girls in a region with one of the lowest literacy rates in the world. In March 2017, Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation opened the Razia Jan Institute, the first women’s post-secondary vocational school in this region of Afghanistan. The Razia Jan Institute provides its students with a clear path to empowered employment as midwives while bringing medical services to a desperately underserved region.
