Our model schools provide highly-qualified teachers, innovative learning programs, a safe and secure learning environment where children can flourish, and strong local community investment.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Approximately 50% of school age boys and 80% girls are illiterate. Our “Read Afghanistan” program provides original, customized and illustrated storybooks that have improved literacy levels by over 80% in primary and middle school grades. These bi-lingual storybooks offer additional opportunities for more advanced students who wish to learn English as a second language.
How will this project solve this problem?
“Read Afghanistan” Literacy Program, Teacher Training, Peace Environmental and Computer Education, Cultural Exchanges, Community School Committees, School Administration Training
Potential Long Term Impact
Each model school directly benefits 1,000-5,000 students per year, giving them a quality education and skills to prepare them to become productive adults. Other beneficiaries include 20-150 teachers, administrative, maintenance and security staff.
