Awaiting election results in Afghanistan

Dear friends, 

Happy New Year! We hope that you and your families have had a restful holiday season and peaceful 2020 so far. We certainly felt the love from you - our global community of supporters came together to raise nearly $11,000 to sponsor students' education and invest in new schools. We are so incredibly grateful!

You may know that Afghanistan held presidential elections on September 28, 2019, two weeks after President Trump froze the peace talks. Even though it has been four months since the elections, a winner has not been officially declared. The election had a very low voter turnout, many protests, and allegations of fraud, and the Independent Election Commission has a lot to work through. 

Partnership with the government and Ministry of Education is very important to the success of Aid Afghanistan for Education's schools, especially when it comes to opening a new school, and so we will continue waiting for the election results before moving forward with this project. It's very important to be patient when working in Afghanistan!

I do want to share with you the story of Khatera, a successful AAE graduate. She says:

"I was a refugee in Pakistan and when I returned to Afghanistan, the only option for me were simple literacy classes, which didn't provide general education. I kept looking around until I found Aid Afghanistan for Education. I was admitted at 4th grade at the age of 18, and after graduation, I attended pedagogy. After graduation, I found a job to teach, which allows me to provide for my family.  Establishing schools like Aid Afghanistan for Education is very important for people like me."

Our team is hopeful and confident that new schools, once we're able to move forward, will benefit hundreds of students like Khatera. Thank you so much for your generosity, patience, and warm wishes!
