NFT Venture Collaborates with Afghan Fraternity to Aid Women Gain Access to Education
New York-based nonprofit group collaborated with non-fungible token (NFT) startup Bookblocks.io to assist Afghan women get access to education after the Taliban invasion. Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, will be available for purchase on Oct. 5, with profits donated to Women for Afghan Women, an organization that assists women in Afghanistan and the United States get education and vocational training.
The artwork depicts a half woman’s face framed by a single butterfly wing, which displays the phrase “Nothing is impossible for a determined woman.” Taliban militants prohibited nearly all women and girls from receiving school when they seized control of Afghanistan in the 1990s.
Most of the developments have been identical to what we saw last month, when the radical Islamist party gained control of the government after the U.S. military departure. They’ve advised men and boys to return to school so far, albeit Mujahid said that the Taliban want to provide women and girls equal access to school “as soon as feasible.”
Naheed Samadi Bahram, the United States country director for Women for Afghan Women, says, “This is a generation that grew up optimistic and dreaming about their future via educational opportunities.”
We are dedicated to providing services to Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and refugees from Afghanistan who immigrate to the United States.
For every purchase of NFTs, Women for Afghan Women will get 100% of the money, and 5% of the sales after that will go back to Women for Afghan Women.

In order to commemorate the estimated 2.2 million girls who are not in school in Afghanistan, the firm intends to make 2,200 NFTs. At the time of this writing, a price of $75 was offered for one Ether (ETH). Afghan women, putting their lives at danger, have taken to social media and in-person protests to demand an end to the Taliban’s prohibition of their attending school.
While the scenario continues to evolve, the project to teach Afghan females on coding and robotics, called Code to Inspire, is offering online programming courses.
