Our Mission

Ascend develops young women into leaders through community service and the sport of mountain climbing. 

Our short term goals include achieving tangible climbing feats, of known peaks and first ascents. Our long term goal is to develop a cadre of strong female role models and leaders who are equipped and motivated to help their society transition to peace. Our team members occupy a unique space in Afghan culture; they are role models because of their climbing achievements as well as their civic contributions.
