Summary

This microproject focuses on the transportation of young women in Afghanistan to Ayni supported Teacher Training Centers. It costs $1 per day per student to provide them with secure transportation. Each student attends for two years. Your donation will pay for enable these women to continue their education thus enabling more children in Afghanistan to continue their education. Our funding goal for this micro-project is one month for 30 students.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Afghanistan faces a shortage of female teachers on an epic scale. For a girl in a rural village where conservative attitudes are high, the absence of a well-educated female teacher can crush her chances of going to school and continue on to higher education. Our organization operates a Teacher Training Center aimed at educating young women to become teachers in rural areas.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project enables 30 girls to travel to the Teacher Training Center for one month, six days a week. Upon graduation, the girls return to their rural village and teach in the village's school, educating girls and meeting the cultural standards that require girls to be taught by females. This will dramatically improve girls' opportunities economically, socially and provides an avenue to continue on to higher education. Without female teachers, the doors close to education for girls.

Potential Long Term Impact

A well built, functioning school provides a healthy and safe environment for a community's children, and a place where they learn the skills they need to become productive and peaceful adults. Many school buildings have been constructed in Afghanistan in recent years. But a building alone does not make a school. To be successful, it must be supplied, have qualified teachers, be fully supported by its community, and become fully sustained by its community. That's our long-term goal.
