In 2019, our Foundation formed an elementary school program for girls living in the district of Achin, in eastern Afghanistan.
Currently, there are over 200 girls attending the program. However, there is no building and the lessons are taught outdoors with temperatures that range from 120 degree F to freezing cold temperatures depending on the season. There are another 500 pre-teen and teenager girls who are not able to join the school because of lack of security given the inexistence of an actual physical building.
We have secured $45,000 dollars from our dedicated donors from Maryland, and we are looking to raise the remaining $70,000 to get the school building built and furnished. This will be the first school for girls in the region in 40 years.
Our Foundation's mission is empowerment of women, and the key to it is education . We are working very hard to educate girls and women in Afghanistan towards a better future and self-sufficiency.
Please, visit our website to learn more about us and access the report of our work in the last 20 years: http://www.afghanwomensfund.org
Every dollar counts! We will send the donors a picture of the school once it is built!
In gratitude for your contribution!
