For more information contact cpsga@millersville.edu

Sherjan left Afghanistan as a refugee in 1979. She returned to Afghanistan in 1999 and established underground classes for girls. February 15, 2003, Aid Afghanistan for Education established its first remedial education program for 300 girls between the age of 12 to 16. In two years this grew to a total of 1200 students.  Aid Afghanistan for Education provides quality education to ensure students, who do not otherwise have access to formal education, receive quality teaching and unlock the potential of young marginalized Afghans through education as a means to prepare them to fully participate in the society. In 2005 she established the Boumi design and manufacturing firm with an initial local workforce with the goal of providing employment, technical skills, and design training so that its Afghan employees may use the knowledge and experience gained in possibly their own future commercial endeavors.
