Project Report | Aug 31, 2021
Quality education includes life skills

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Administrator

The Yacoobi private schools are operating in the very difficult circumstances now facing Afghanistan. The schools are open and operating under the rules that have been given such as dividing male and female. It is exam season and students are studying hard and sitting their exams as usual. It is a great credit to them and their teachers as everyone has heightened levels of fear, stress and anxiety.

The students study many academic subjects but also learn life skills, behavior and core values such as, compassion, trust, respect, listening and advocacy. All girls, from the youngest to the oldest, learn about good manners, building on what they have learned at home.  “We teach students about manners at school.  This is part of our curriculum of core values which includes, trust, respect for others, listening, advocacy, cooperation and caring, good citizenship, leadership and self-confidence. Good manners help children gain the respect and confidence of others. A child learns from what she sees and seeing elders treating others kindly and with respect, she will copy that behavior.  Girls, especially need to develop self-confidence and leadership skills. Society works better when everyone is valued, listened to and treated with respect.”

We are delighted that this project and our microproject (which fund individual $300 scholarships for girls) have changed the lives of many girls, who have gone on to higher education or gained employment.

Thank you for your support and interest in the education of Afghan youth.
