We are delighted to make this donation to Afghan Connection who will be building an SCA supported girls’ school in Worsaj which will bring together community based education, construction of classrooms, science labs, libraries and sports facilities
(PRWeb UK) April 30, 2011
Afghan Connection has been working in Education and Health in Afghanistan since 2002 and has funded the construction of 33 schools for over 35,000 children, twenty of which are twinned to schools in the UK. Four of these schools are in the Worsaj region of North East Afghanistan.
The Bonita Trust has donated $150,000 to Afghan Connection towards the construction of Khadejatal Kubra Girls School. The school building will provide classrooms for the 700 girls studying there and will encourage more to come to this school. These are the first generation of girls in this valley to have an education and this donation will bring hope and encouragement as well as the tremendous new facilities it offers.
“AC visited the school last year at the invitation of the headmaster. On arrival, we were asked for our help to provide a school building for these girls. We are indebted to The Bonita Trust for their help and look forward to watching the progress of these girls, who are determined to study hard and to become the doctors, teachers and engineers of the future,” said Dr Sarah Fane “I will be visiting the school in April and will see the foundations being laid. This is a wonderful good news story for the girls in this valley and we are indebted to the Bonita Trust for their help.”
Ruth Parasol, principal benefactor and founding member of Bonita Trust’s International Advisory Board, said:, “We are delighted to make this donation to Afghan Connection who will be building an SCA supported girls’ school in Worsaj knowing that it will bring together community based education, construction of classrooms, science labs, libraries and sports facilities.”
