Welcoming Ayni's school project to the Safer World

Thanks for your continued generosity towards helping us make the world a safer place! With your help, we are continuing to support education, vocational training, and health care in Pakistan and Afghanistan with some amazing partners.

We recently added a new project to the list of Safer World beneficiaries: the expansion of a rural grade school outside of Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, funded and led by Ayni. The Safer World Fund is helping to add four classrooms, a library and furnishings to the school, for which Ayni founder Julie Bolz led the initial build in 2003.  Since 2003, the local community has embraced the school and Ayni funded two additional classrooms in 2010. In 2011, enrollment grew to 1,440 school students attending in two daily shifts, yet additional space is still needed in order to serve all children in the community. The community has demonstrated a strong desire to educate its children to give them opportunities in life otherwise unavailable to them, but it needs our help to make that happen.

This school, along with the rest of the Safer World Fund projects, continues to benefit from the 50% matching funds available to them!  On their behalf and ours, we’d like to thank you for your continued support.
