Summary

This project will support the community-driven Rahyab School in Kabul, Afghanistan where children with disabilities aged 6 - 18 years who are either mute, deaf and/or blind, receive basic education and vocational training from specially trained teachers who are mostly disabled themselves. This school helps filling the gap in the public education system and equip this underserved community with necessary skills towards integration as contributing members of the society.

Challenge

95% of Afghanistan's children with disabilities do not have access to education due to environmental barriers and lack of dedicated facilities. The public system's insufficient resources and the cultural stigma associated with disability further exacerbate the situation. Kabul's Rahyab School plays a vital role in serving this marginalized community; challenges remain high in securing sustainable funding and expanding this model to other regions of the country.

Solution

Having developed an academic curriculum as well as vocational courses, the School represents an opportunity for children with disabilities to access education and acquire vital skills. The activities include Braille, computer literacy, music, embroidery, handicrafts, bicycle repairing, sewing and other crafts. Since the students come from the poorest levels of society, the School also provides them with daily meals and transportation.

Long-Term Impact

The project helps supporting children with disabilities to ultimately prepare them to achieve self-sufficiency. These children and young adults become active members of society. Action for Development aims at replicating this school model outside of Kabul and reach out to a higher number of children across the country. In addition, we plan on establishing collaborations with the public and private sectors in order to facilitate job placements for future graduates of the school.
