Last week, #muwci
played host to a group of vibrant young women from SOLA - School of Leadership, Afghanistan and @middleburycollege
. Founded by Shabana Basij-Rasikh - celebrated educator and humanitarian, SOLA is committed to "building a generation of compassionate, curious, confident women leading a peaceful, prosperous and united Afghanistan." In their two weeks here, the SOLA students under the guidance of Middlebury TAs and professors, engaged with the local communities through the College Triveni program, explored the Western Ghats on bicycles, and soaked in some of what makes life #onthehill
special. As evidenced by the teary farewell with MUWCI's resident students, two short weeks can create powerful experiences when true synergy happens.
