Whom It May Concern,
Maliha Zulfacar has been a tireless and staunch supporter
of and participant in the reconstruction of Afghanistan.
She has contributed considerable amounts of time, money,
material and energy to educational development and improving
the lives of women and girls in her country of origin. Dr.
Zulfacar has been a strong advocate and active supporter
of higher education in Afghanistan. She has visited her motherland
several times to learn about what she can do for higher education.
She designed the web site to provide necessary information
on Afghanistan Higher Education. Meanwhile, she developed
a documentary on Kabul University, she is working on a fundraising
effort to establish a child center at Kabul University, she
has delivered over 400 boxes of textbooks for Kabul and regional
universities libraries, and she has spoken at numerous forums.
Her advocacy, representations, lobbying, and other contributions
regarding our higher education have simply been invaluable.
it not for her contractual and parental responsibilities
in the U.S., we would gladly have given her a position here.
But we do need and depend on outside support and would like
to retain Dr. Zulfacar as a spokesperson and as a liaison.
we are unable to compensate Maliha monetarily, I request
all the friends and supporters of Afghan higher education
to recognize and offer her whatever financial support they
might be able in order to enable her to pursue further her
valuable work regarding the reconstruction of Afghanistan
you in advance for your consideration.
Minister of Higher Education
