This project will help student victims of school terrorist attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, providing cash assistance to the affected families for medical costs and basic sustenance and scholarships to the affected students. This project will further provide funds to the targeted schools to rebuild, replenish books and classroom supplies in order to become operational again to continue their mission of educating the youth.
On May 8, 2021, more than 85 schoolchildren, mostly girls ages 11-15 years old, lost their lives in a devastating terrorist attack in front of Sayed Ul-Shuhada school in Kabul. In October 2020, a suicide attack killed 43 students in Kawsare Danesh educational center. In August 2018, an attack on a school killed 48 students. In September 2018, a twin bombing at a sports club killed 20. These genocidal attacks underscore a deliberate targeting of Hazara educational centers in Kabul by the Taliban.
The Foundation in collaboration with grassroots organizations and community leaders will provide cash assistance to the student victims and their families for medical costs and basic sustenance. This project will support the schools to rebuild and restore their classrooms, replenish their book and stationary supplies and hire unarmed security to mitigate future attacks so that they continue educating the youth.
This project will address the urgent needs of one of the most vulnerable populations in south-central Asia - the marginalized and long discriminated Hazaras. There will be a significantly decreased interest and attention towards Afghanistan after the US withdrawal in September 2021. With the funds raised, this initiative will be one of the main avenue of support to help the educational institutions in the underserved Hazara communities in Afghanistan.
