Her work on this landmark resolution was recognized by the University of Toronto’s ‘Great Minds’ alumni campaign. Maliha implemented one of the first training and capacity-building programs for women in post-conflict Afghanistan and served as the Social Impact Consultant for Canada’s first and largest ‘signature’ aid project in Kandahar Afghanistan. She is currently working on a book manuscript entitled Decolonizing Peacebuilding: Lessons Afghanistan.
