Promise Background
During President Ghani’s election campaign, the equitable participation and development of women’s rights across political, heath, educational and economic was a key area of his pledges to Afghanistan’s women. As part of these commitments, President Ghani committed to establishing a world class women only University in his campaign manifesto: “To boost women’s capacity for leadership, through coordination and cooperation with the private sector, or by utilizing government resources and opportunities, we will establish at least one female only university that in terms of educational standards would be in tune with global standards of education. Given the particular circumstance in Afghanistan, establishing a women only university will reduce the gap between male and female education opportunities and from the point of view of cultural values, families will be reassured that their daughters will be studying in a safe and reliably modest educational environment.” (Change and Continuity: A Manifesto (English version) p.95)
