Peer Mentoring for Afghan Young Women

In December 2021, Monash Gender, Peace and Security launched the Monash Peer Mentoring for Afghan Young Women program, which connects Monash students with university-age Afghan women to get them to continue thinking and writing about important issues while they are unable to attend university during Taliban occupation of Afghanistan.

The program has two primary aims. The program aims to enhance the skills of participants by providing educational resources on academic writing and researching as well as providing a platform to publish discussion pieces on important political topics, such as 'Six Months Later': Research Papers on Afghanistan and climate change.
