    This description of Reza Deghati's work was prepared when Reza Deghati was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
    Introduction
    Reza Deghati and his organization AINA are helping rebuild a strong and democratic civil society in Afghanistan through the development and diffusion of independent media. His models of rapid media training and “emergency education” focus on empowering women and children in particular and are now being replicated in areas heavily affected by war and conflict across the globe through Reza’s new initiative “Open Mind.”
