As the Taliban took over Afghanistan the existence of women and girls seems to be in a threat. The co-founder of Afghanistan’s only all-girls boarding school Shabana Basij-Rasikh has burnt all the documents of students to protect them and their families from the Taliban government, after the fall of the west-backed government led by Ashraf Ghani.

Shabana Basij-Rasikh has shared a clip of burning the documents




On 20th August, SOLA’s founder and principal Shabana Basij-Rasikh took to Twitter and shared a clip of burning the records. She wrote “In March 2002, after the fall of Taliban, thousands of Afghan girls were invited to go to the nearest public school to participate in a placement test because the Taliban had burned all-female students’ records to erase their existence. I was one of those girls. Nearly 20 years later, as the founder of the only all-girls boarding school in Afghanistan, I’m burning my students’ records not to erase them, but to protect them and their families”.

I am broken and devastated: said the SOLA founder

She wrote “My students, colleagues, and I are safe with enormous gratitude to our ever vibrant global village. The time to appropriately express my gratitude will come. But right now there are many who aren’t or increasingly don’t feel safe. I’m broken & devastated for them”.

She also posted a donation link asking for her School of Leadership Afghanistan (SOLA) . Then she added “I’m making this statement to mainly reassure the families of our students whose records we burned and our supporters of our safety. As I focus on the safety and well-being of my students, I don’t plan on making any further comments”.
