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.


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.

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.
