Darman school 1st quarter eport 2020

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,
