I am head over heels for Khan Academy’s videos in Pashto because as an educator, I understand and value the excellent work that Khan Academy has provided for millions of learners around the globe. As an Afghan, who cares deeply for the people of Afghanistan,  I saw an opportunity to combine my two great passions and hope for amazing results. My core identities, as both an educator and an Afghan intersect in the most incredible way.

I am committed to the outcomes of this project as education is the only way forward for the Afghan people and providing them videos in Pashto will play a critical role in advancing their educational goals. Learning and growing, is there anything better in life to commit to? I am hopeful that Afghanistan will experience peace and prosperity and that Khan Academy can be a part of the brighter future of Afghanistan.
