Public schooling in Afghanistan is lacking in proper resources (such as subjects with no teachers, and the children are expected to try to teach themselves). In order to get a proper education, parents need to send their children to private schools. This costs $30/child/month, and while this may not seem much to us, it is much too expensive for the average Afghan family. If the parents are able to afford to send some of their children to private school, they are most likely to send their boys. Because of this, we will mainly be focusing on supporting girls in Afghanistan to go to private school.
"Sponsor An Afghan Student" Program
With the help of people like you, we were able to sponsor 15 qualified students who were able to attend private school. These students attended Marefat High School, a reputable school for children in grades 1-12, located in West of Kabul, Afghanistan. The sponsorship covered each child's tuition, uniform, stationery, and transportation.
Thank you so much to those who have volunteered to sponsor these children! We would not have been able to do this without you!
