Hope for Education and Leadership in Afghanistan has been awarded a significant grant by the US Embassy in Kabul to expand Model United Nations to university students throughout the country. HELA had the honor of bringing student, peer to peer driven Model UN to Kabul. Now the team is taking it a step forward. Over the next three years, HELA will be implement MUN in Herat, Mazar, and Nangarhar, and expand its operations in Kabul. Partnering with universities in the country, HELA will develop an MUN university network, culminating in a large national competitive conference. HELA will also continue its Women’s Empowerment program, working to develop female leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
HELA began as a high school MUN program, and with the support of delegates and educators around the world, became Afghanistan’s first NGO devoted to promoting quality, student-driven, co-ed Model United Nations. MUN Impact is a proud partner in HELA’s quest to make MUN available to everyone, everywhere.
