As a traditional country, women in Afghanistan always have faced with challenges and problems on their way towards being more active and educated. But during the recent decade after Taliban regime a lot of women achieved numerous success and established their own businesses to help other Afghan women.

Roya Mahboob  and her partners in FilmAnnex are going to give this opportunity for Afghan girls at schools to change their future and take steps towards supporting and empowering women in developing countries where the start point is Afghanistan.

The Huffington Post recently published an article about her outstanding and courageous activities in Afghanistan to help and support women.  She mentioned the importance of using social and digital media and the recent technology and its influences on people's lives specially Afghan women who spent their darkest time during Taliban. She said: "These young women are becoming more independent and on social media they have more confidence to talk openly about the things they want. They are making their own community of friends online. And with social media and target marketing they will get their financial freedom and independence"

I found the following image very interesting and meaningful specially in case of sustainable education and building the update educational system in developing countries.
 
 
 
Education is the bough which is like a bridge that connects the root to the leaves and branches which represents the important role of education. Education can lead to a sustainable development in the societies when the teaching and learning procedures are not only a ways to get more knowledge but to connect you to the whole world and give you the ability to improve your communication skills.

Roya Mahboob in her recent trip to California met many thought leaders in technology. One of the great achievement of her trip is to be listed among the investors in Jelly HQ whom are Biz Stone, Co-Founder and CEO Jelly Industries, Inc. Jack Dorsey , the co-founder and CEO of Square, musician and activist Bono and politician, Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn, and Nobel Laureate Al Gore.

Women's Annex and Jelly HQ are going to help Afghan women towards accessing new technology and being empowered using social and digital media networking platforms.
