The school year in Afghanistan is well underway and as promised, we’re writing to update you on the student who received the scholarship that you helped to fund! A young boy named Homayoun is attending a private school in Herat Province, thanks to your generosity.
Homayoun is 13 years old and his father is a mechanic but the family could not afford to send their son to school without aid. Because of your help, Homayoun is in 6th grade this school year. Above, you can see him and some of his classmates who also received scholarships. In all, through Global Giving and other sources, we were able to provide 107 scholarships to students just like Homayoun to study at private schools in Afghanistan this school year!
A staff person reported that, “the students who receive scholarships are all from poor families. Many have lost one or both parents and need to do some work part time to help their families. When they heard they had been given a scholarship they were so happy they became teary eyed. This is what one student said, “ I have two sisters, my father is a drug addict and my mother goes to a neighbor to do washing and cleaning. I was not able to pay for tuition or stationary. Thank you for this great opportunity; it has changed my life.”
We’d like to thank you once again for supporting our efforts to provide a high quality education to as many students as possible.
Thank you so much for your generous support!! The school year is currently in session in Afghanistan, and rather than give out a partial scholarship, Creating Hope International will work with our Afghan partners to select a deserving student to receive the scholarship you helped to fund for the school year when it begins April 2015. We will update you in the spring of 2014 with information about the student who receives this scholarship.
Again, thank you for your kind donation. This scholarship will allow one poor student to receive an education that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. Your donation will help to change the course of one young Afghan’s life. Thank you.
