Kamila Ahmadi is the co-founder of Women Empowerment Organization, a project developed to empower and educate girls and women who have been deprived of education by their families, financial challenges, and traditional cultural beliefs of society. The program offered offline English, literacy, and science courses before the Taliban but transitioned to online classes after the political disruption. In addition, the organization provides leadership and communication skills training.

Before establishing this organization, Ahmadi worked as an English instructor. After the Taliban took over Afghanistan, she succeeded in getting a fully funded scholarship at the Asian University for Women (AUW) and is pursuing her education in economics. Besides her university studies, Ahmadi has been working as a Peer Leader of the AUW’s Study Skill Courses and as a volunteer student assistant at the AUW admission office for two years. She also has participated in several fellowships, including the Global Admission of Millennium Fellowship.

“As a visionary leader I, am trying to train them how to break the barriers to have a bright future.”
