10 of the Girls on Afghanistan's Robotics Team Have Escaped With the Help of an American Mom of 11

Aug 20th

Allyson Reneau is a mom of 11 and a Harvard graduate. She first met the Afghan Girls Robotics team when they attended a Human to Mars conference in Washington D.C. in 2019, where Reneau served on the board of directors.

Reneau has kept in touch with the team since. When she learned that Kabul had fallen to the Taliban she was worried for the girls and contacted a friend who works at the U.S. Embassy in Qatar to try to help the girls escape from Afghanistan.

On Monday, Reneau shared a picture of herself with some of the girls on Instagram asking for her followers to pray.

On Wednesday, she shared this:

"Everything turned around when you all prayed on Monday. Please don't stop now."

Ten of the girls have safely been evacuated to a secure location where they will be able to continue on with their education.

Reneau is still working hard to help the girls who have not yet escaped. She shared this on Instagram:

"I just decided to take any action I could to save a few. Evil triumphs when good people do nothing!!"

I want to be Allyson Reneau when I grow up!
