My Hope is in my school

I am Zarsanga, daughter of Sardar. I am student in grade four. We live in Zarshoi village of Kama near to our school. I am very happy to be a Darman school student.

My father is a farmer, and he is illiterate. My two brothers are also studying in this Darman School.

My older brother graduated from this school and currently, he is nurse in Kama District Hospital.

Many schools closed in many parts of Afghanistan, and often girls cannot go to school. I am very happy to be able to study even while conditions are so bad.

Our teachers are kind and intelligent, they love us. When we are starting our class, they first of all ask us about previous lessons. When they are satisfied by our answers, they continue with a new lesson, and at end of it they give us homework.

The Darman Organization provides all the necessities for our school such as books, notebooks, pens, pencils, school bags etc. and also encourages us to study.

Last month my mother was very sick, and she was hospitalized for a few days. The doctors served my mother a lot until she recovered. I want to become a worthy doctor in the future and serve my people.

We Afghan children and all our people have suffered a lot, and we are still suffering. All our hope depends on this school. I call on all kindhearted people to help our school and not let it close.

Happy student  

I am Sabira, daughter of Gullab. My father is a farmer in Kama, I and my brother Ajmal are studying in our Darman School.

I am in grade 4 and my brother is in grade 5. We are very happy in this school.

When I was under school age and saw that many boys and girls were going to school I was really excited to join that school as well. Now I am proud that I am a student in spite of our family being very poor.

I am in the second position of my class. I study a lot to advance to first position. Our teachers are very good. I am glad I can read and write now. If we did not have this Darman school, all we girls would be illiterate. Attending school teaches us much more than the contents of the school lessons. I am lucky that this school is very near to our home. Other schools are too far from our village, I would not be able to go there.

Our Darman school made a great positive change in our life and community. All children are very enthusiastic about school, and those students who have graduated from this school are very clever.

My parents are uneducated. They are very happy, when I read my books, and they always pray for those people who built this school. When my father comes home from work, he always asks me and my brother, what we learned in school, and we have to repeat it for him. When we read our lessons to him, he becomes very happy and says, that Sabira will become a good doctor and Ajmal will became an engineer.

My father encourages us to study a lot, so we have a bright future, and our economy will also be good and strong in the future.

We are very grateful for those who are helping us and for our school. Please keep helping our school - our future and hope are tied to our Darman School.

My school makes my future

My Name is Gulsoom. Our family lives in Waresa-e-Faqeer village of Kama district. I am student in 4th class of my Darman school. My parents are illiterate, but they know well about the benefit of education.

My father said, that since Darman School opened here, our community changed, and now every child goes to school with enthusiasm.

My older brother graduated from Darman school and continued his education in Qalai Akhund High School. After graduation in class 12, he passed the entrance exam for the agriculture and livestock faculty. Almost 2 years ago he also graduated from that faculty, and now he is a good animal doctor in Kama district. Since my brother became a veterinary doctor, our economy has also improved. So, the foundation of my brother’s future was laid in Darman school.

I am studying a lot and have the hope to become a doctor and serve my people and community. Darman School is very important for my future.

We, the children, thank all kind-hearted people for their help and cooperation with our Darman School. We appeal for your help also in future, so that this school can move forward and we can realize our dreams for the future.

Yours sincerely,

Happy Student

 My name is Nabila, I am  student of grade six in Darman School. We live in Waresa-e-Faqeer village of Kama district.

When I was below school age, I wished to be older quickly, so I could join the school.

My parents are uneducated, and my father is a poor farmer. He is sad, that he couldn't join school. He often told us about the benefits of education.

Almost 6 years ago, our house was in Guge village which is very far from my Darman school. Our relatives live in Waresa-e-Faqeer village. When we visited them some time, I saw that the children there are going to Darman school. I became very upset and started crying, because I could not go to school. Then I put pressure on my father to move house to Waresa-e-Faqeer village. And truly, after some time my father found a land for lease and we shifted our home from Guge to Warasa-e-Faqeer village. There my father applied for my admission in Darman school and I was accepted. So I am very happy now to be student at Darman school.

At the same time I am sad though, that for many girls in my country education is still a dream, but they do not have access to it.

 I want to be a kind teacher in the future, because I want to give education to those girls who are still excluded from school, but are thirsty for education.

 All we students appeal to the  kind-hearted donors to support our school. We really need your help, without your support we can’t continue our education.

 My God blesses our teachers, head master, principle and director of DARMAN NGO, as they are very kind people.


Sincerely yours,

My hope is in my School

My name is Zainab, daughter of Afzal. I am student of 6th class in the DARMAN Primary School. I have one brother and one sister.

I am sorry, I am half-orphan. My family story is very sad, but we hope for a better future.

Almost seven years ago, we had a happy and nice family life. My father was army officer in Helmand province, my elder brother was in class two of Darman school, I and my little sister were not yet admitted in the school. We were very happy; every time when my father came from duty, he took us to the city bazaar and purchased many things which we liked.

Before he left last time, my father told to me, that on his next holiday when he comes back, school admission will be open, and he will take me to the school…. But he never returned. He died in a bomb blast while on duty in Helmand. An army ambulance came to our house and brought my father’s dead body. We were all shocked and cried a lot; my mother fainted and became ill, our relative brought her to the hospital. My father’s dead body remained in the house until the community people took my father and buried him. My mother was still in the hospital. I cried a lot and begged the people to wait until my mother would come back from hospital, but no one listened to me.

For more than one month my mother was in the hospital, and every time she woke up, she just said “Afzal…Afzal”. We spent all our money for that hospital treatment. When we could take her home, we did not have any food. For more than one month our neighbors provided food for us, then I and my brother became beggars in the bazaar to collect some food and money for our living.

Two years after my father’s death, my mother said she must work and searched for a job. A relative found her a cleaning job in a clinic in Kama. After some time, my mother brought me to the school and said: “This was your father’s dream, now I am your father and your mother.”

Now my elder brother is in class 9 in Murad Ali High School, I am in Class 6 and my little sister is in class 3 of Darman School.

After a long time, smile is again on our lips. We all hope we will graduate from school and find good jobs. So, all our hope for the future starts with this Darman school. Without this school, we may still be beggars and uneducated.

I request all supporters to help our school. Many children like us have hope for the future; our teachers are very good people.

We are very grateful for DARMAN NGO and all supporters of this school.


Obediently yours,
