SISTAENABLE is a world wide movement promoting gender equality. Our purpose it to connect and unite the global society of strong women and quality men who have dedicated themselves to enhance equality for all. Our mutual symbol for our cause, is the hand sign of W for “Women Will”, that peacefully signals the world that the sistaenable support unites us all as ONE. Sistaenable = sustainable. As the founder of SISTAENABLE I must say, that Khadija Kubra Association is one of the most successful organizations we partner with – I am very impressed with the constant growth their creativity furthers. I believe this success is based on the two most important aspects in creating any kind of growth:
1. A burning soul that believes in gender justice and also sees how a gender equal society benefits all, because gender equal societies have higher social, humanitarian and economic standards, and therefor they dedicate their life to passionately bring society towards this goal – with a strong but gentle passion that spreads the vibes to everyone engaged, no matter what the level is,
2. and the anthropological understanding of what it takes to move a society from within – the most important way to create the sense of ownership for individual and mutual growth, and the only way to implement change to be ever lasting. Khadija Kubra is indeed a living example of this achievement, as they are proving constant progress, in a region of the world that is under constant pressure against this – not an easy job!
Thank you Khadija Kubra, for all your sistaenable efforts in reaching women with such a diversity, ensuring your ability to eventually reaching every little corner, giving every female a chance.

“If we become a doctor, a doctor needs to write prescriptions for the patient by English — not Dari or Pashto. We need more female doctors because Afghans, their womans, they hide their face or then they don’t want a male doctor exactly. They want to be treated by female doctors. Therefore, we need for female doctors.”
