Afghanistan is the founding location for the Ascend program. Were it not for the fall of the government in 2021, Ascend would have never paused operations. Today, Ascend is working with local partners and NGO’s still operating in Kabul to bring the Ascend program back to life. While the program will not look as it did before, we are committed to providing opportunities to build leadership and well-being skills to the young women of Afghanistan. Come back soon to check out our progress.
