The funds from this microproject will be used to provide books, supplies and transportation for one Afghan student to attend a university in Afghanistan. The student will be a very bright, young Afghan who has completed high school, but without a scholarship would be unable to attend a university.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Afghan Institute of Learning, supported by Creating Hope International, educates thousands of students each year. Many of the students cannot afford to pay for transportation, books and supplies to continue their education at a university. This project will pay for books, supplies and transportation for one student to continue their education at a university in Afghanistan.
How will this project solve this problem?
This microproject will pay for the books, supplies and transportation that one student will need to attend a university. Without this scholarship, attending university would remain an unattainable dream to the student.
Potential Long Term Impact
AIL believes that the way to a brighter future, for both the individual Afghan citizen and the country of Afghanistan, is through education. This scholarship will provide one Afghan student the chance to attend a university in Afghanistan and will change the course of their life forever.
