  • A mother from Oklahoma helped rescue members of the all-girl robotics team from Afghanistan.
  • Allyson Reneau previously met the girls at a conference in 2019 and wanted to help them escape.
  • Reneau told Insider the girls, who landed in Qatar this week, seem “safe, well, and happy.”

A 60-year-old Oklahoma mother who helped several members of an internationally recognized all-girl robotics team from Afghanistan escape the country said they are feeling “so grateful” to be out.

On Tuesday, 10 of the so-called “Afghan Dreamers,” aged 16 to 18, were able to leave Kabul on a commercial flight to Doha, Qatar, after several failed attempts to flee the country.

One of the people who helped them get out was Allyson Reneau, a mother-of-11 from Oklahoma, who first met the girls at a Humans to Mars summit in Washington DC in May 2019.
