Child Foundation helps young students living in or near Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan to stay in school by providing them with ongoing support via worldwide donors facilitated by a US office in coordination with a local Afghanistan office. The children helped are in difficult financial situations but are intelligent students who are often at the top of their class.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Girls in many parts of Afghanistan are forbidden to attend school. Those that do go to school and have the potential to succeed in college have difficulty passing the national college entrance exams. Many boys in Afghanistan are able to pass these exams because they have the support of their families and the community. Girls often fail these exams because they have no resources or support to pay for exam preparatory classes.
How will this project solve this problem?
Your support will provide funding for young students living in Mazar-e-Sharif. The funding will be given directly to the students and their families in order to gain a more stable and healthier lifestyle. This will help the students to stay in school which in turn will help them become more independent and eventually become professionals and be more actively involved in their communities.
Potential Long Term Impact
