Dear SOLA friends,
Longer days and warmer weather are the signs of the coming of spring and, in Afghanistan, the arrival of the new school year -- and although the seasons are changing, the challenges we faced in 2020 remain.
We met these challenges last year, and we overcame them. This year, we will do so again.
Our robust remote learning model, which we implemented last summer in response to COVID, will be in place and ready for both students and teachers on the first day of school. This model maximizes student safety while minimizing health risks, and while details must necessarily remain vague, we are confident that it will enable us to deliver an educational experience that is unparalleled in Afghanistan.
The word "sola," in the Pashto language, means "peace." This word is our mission, this word is our goal -- and in 2021, as we become a home for Afghan girls in grades 6-11, this word is more meaningful than ever.
We wish you health, and sola, throughout the coming of spring.
