We first met Suraya Sadeed when she courageously
defied the Taliban to save thousands of Afghan people. Since 2003, The Oprah
Winfrey Foundation has granted Suraya's organization, Help the Afghan Children,
more than $1 million to build seven large schools to educate 15,000 boys and
girls and employ more than 400 teachers. Suraya says these new schools are
transforming entire communities. To learn more about Help the Afghan
