The purpose of Rahila Scholarships is to continue Rahila’s dream of higher education by providing a source of financial aid for deserving, low-income Afghan youths who might otherwise be unable to afford their studies in Afghanistan. It is intended to benefit young boys and girls who, like Rahila, aim to make a lasting impact in their communities.
