Literacy changes lives

The Bon students that we support all come from poor families and they would not be able to get a quality education in their home communities. Many arrive behind their age groups in basics such as reading. All students are encouraged to read as much as possible and to write essays, poetry, commentaries and letters.

One student said, “We all know that books are our best companions in life. They can give us new ideas, knowledge, stories. Books can help us become what we want in life maybe an engineer, a doctor or teacher. We get a wider vocabulary if we read lots of books. So don’t forget to read more and more…”

Thank you for your support.

Scholarships changes girls' lives

We are working with partners in Afghanistan to help high school and university students providing scholarships to those who would struggle to afford these educational opportunities.  Dr. Yacoobi’s Private Schools (2 in Herat and 2 in Kabul and one kindergarten) have 2,137 students, 1,208 female. Most of the recent high school scholarship recipients are at the second Herat branch school.

The school curriculum is very varied including traditional academics, music, sport such as soccer and cycling and modern skills like computing. Students are also taught about peace, democracy, elections and good citizenship as well as core values such as trust, respect, listening and compassion. One Herat school also has a special, intensive 2 year Leadership Course which has 30 students (15 female).   These students study in-depth leadership, management, English, computing, good governance, self-confidence and public speaking plus other topics.

Thank you for your support.
