ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S RIGHTS
July 10, 2014

I have been involved with the Alliance for International Women's Rights for eight years, and I am proud to support such an incredible organization that makes a significant impact on the lives of our students and volunteers. I am inspired by the women and girls in Afghanistan who participate in AIWR's English Program and I love learning about the interactions and connections that our English teachers and students make with one another.

ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S RIGHTS
May 7, 2012

I first began volunteering with the Alliance for International Women's Rights in 2006, as an in-country volunteer placed with one of our partners in Mongolia. My placement in Mongolia with the Liberal Women's Brain Pool was undoubtedly life-changing. Several months after my return to the US, I joined the volunteer staff as the Program Manager. My experience with AIWR was a huge factor in my decision to return to graduate school 12 years after I received my B.S., to get a degree in International Studies so that I could focus my career on women's human rights. Volunteering with AIWR continues to be one of the most important activities in my life. I love every bit of the work I do, from developing and managing the website, to preparing and analyzing data from our English Program evaluations, to working with volunteers to support our partners. When I read quotes from our English Program teachers and students about their experiences with the Program, I get goosebumps—it is so exciting. I love being a part of something that has such a tremendous impact on the participants.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

My volunteer experience inspired me to go to graduate school to study International Studies, where I focused on Gender, Human Rights, and Development. The intention is to dedicate my career to women's human rights.
