Join the #GirlsAreAlsoStrong movement

In a country consistently ranked the most dangerous country for women in the world, where 88% of women are illiterate and 87% face domestic violence or abuse, the Ascend team is breaking down barriers every day thanks to donors like you.

Our two-year mountaineering based training programs empower young Afghan women to fight back and rise above the challenges they face in everyday life.

Help our girls show the world that #GirlsAreAlsoStrong

So what does a donation mean for Ascend?
