This event is part of the MMM #RaiseAPen campaign which answers the call of mothers in Afghanistan for the continued right to education for their daughters.
Backed by key global personalities and organisations, the campaign supports education for women and girls not only because it is a fundamental human right and remains central across all political divides globally, but also because it is a key condition for development and building peace.
