The Girls of Sola
Since U.S. troops withdrew from Afghanistan and the country fell to the Taliban, Afghan girls have been barred from school beyond 6th grade. Lesley Stahl travels to meet a group of Afghan girls who are continuing their education in an unlikely place, the African nation of Rwanda. The girls are students of a school called SOLA, led by a remarkable Afghan woman whose commitment to educating girls began under the first Taliban regime, when she attended a secret school disguised as a boy. SOLA, Afghanistan’s first boarding school for girls, managed to evacuate all its students and staff after the Taliban takeover, making the girls of SOLA among the only Afghan middle school and high school girls in the world today with access to a formal education. This is a double-length segment. Shari Finkelstein is the producer.
