Welcome to ALPA's Sister Academy: Dr. Nasir Jallah Founded KUMSs in Exile to Educate Afghan Women Doctors

M. Nasir Jallah, an ALPA Academy lecturer and a determined advocate for education, founded KUMSs in Exile in response to the heartbreaking situation Afghan female medical students faced after the Taliban takeover. Witnessing their struggle, Jallah knew he had to act.

Jallah's initiative began with initially connecting nearly 8,000 aspiring doctors primarily because of his popularity as a prominent medical expert. He soon realized that simply teaching medicine himself wouldn't be enough. Inspired by the challenges faced by female medical students returning to universities after Mujahideen and Taliban rule in year 2000, Jallah envisioned KUMSs in Exile. This program would bridge the gap by allowing these women to continue their education remotely with the help of overseas professors ( Afghanistan Medical university professors who resides outside Afghanistan), using Jallah Academy's online platform.

Jallah emphasizes the importance of maintaining continuity in education. KUMSs in Exile allows these students to pick up where they left off, rather than starting from scratch. Through collaboration with dedicated professors and online platforms, KUMSs in Exile keeps the flame of medical education alive for Afghan women in exile.

KUMSs in Exile is more than just about education; it's about empowering these women. Jallah's program provides them with the tools and support they need to pursue their dreams in medicine despite the chaos in their homeland. It fosters solidarity, resilience, and a vision for a brighter future where Afghan women in medicine can contribute to their communities.

Jallah's story is a testament to the power of determination, innovation, and community in the face of adversity. As he advocates for Afghan women's education, Jallah reminds us that even in the darkest times, hope persists. Through education, that hope can become a beacon of light for a better tomorrow.
