The AHA Foundation was established by Ayaan Hirsi Ali in 2007 to put the ideas she writes about into practice. The organization believes in liberty for all. That means liberty from female genital mutilation, honor violence and forced marriages. And it means liberty to challenge the ideology of Islamism - extremism that threatens Western civilization - with rational, Enlightenment thought.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the AHA Foundation raises funds and leads programs to protect women from honor violence, to advance freedom of speech in public debate and to support the work of Muslim reformers.
