Afghanistan

SUPPORT TO THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN AND GIRLS

Context

The great lack of education in the different regions of Afghanistan is terrific , as only 30% of the children are literate… Since 2005, year of our first mission in Afghanistan, our aim to give girls and boys an education, is unfolding year after year. We have built 7 schools in the Panjshir region allowing the education of 1000 children and a school in Mazar e Sharif.

All the schools built by Mission Enfance are then taken on by the Board of Education of the Afghan government. On the 16 girls that we have trained to A-levels in our Don e Rewat school in Panjshir, 5 have become teachers in our schools (therefore, being on the spot, we do not have to finance the transportation of the teachers from Sangona at the mouth of Panjshir…) and 11 are currently studying at the university of Kaboul.

In 2016, we have constructed a 9 classroom school in Mazar e Sharif, destined to start with for 1.400 pupils. They are now 2.500. In 2018, we will be adding a new floor with 9 classrooms  to our Bibi Nezarat school, in order to educate the totality of the children towards A-levels, in this poor neighbourhood of Mazar e Sharif. We will add a kindergarten to the school grounds and provide equipment and uniforms for our 2.500 new students having escaped the Daesh and Taliban exactions.

We will be financially supporting Dr Belqis Katil’s clinic of Kaboul.
