Pre-Health Shadowing is offering female-presenting students who live in Afghanistan and Iran free medical school admissions support
Afghan and Iranian Female Medical and/or Pre-Medical Students
The women of Afghanistan and Iran need our help. Women have been stripped of fundamental rights to education and socialization in Afghanistan after the Taliban assumed power in August 2021. The Taliban banned girls from secondary education and barred women from long-distance travel without a male chaperone, working outside, and going to public parks and recently ordered the closure of all beauty salons. In Iran, women have been under attack by the authoritarian regime, which has been executing peaceful protesters following the murder of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody for “improperly" wearing her hijab. Women’s rights are human rights. Every human deserves the right to an education. We are offering free assistance in achieving that education abroad for the women of Afghanistan and Iran. We can help with applications, pre-health shadowing experiences, and more in the future. Please contact us if you are a woman living in Afghanistan/Iran and need help to achieve your dreams.
