Help Afghan Connection to raise funds to build a school for 459 girls at Yakatoot School, Takhar Province, Northern Afghanistan. These girls have no school building of their own and currently have their lessons outside on the dusty ground or in tattered tents. It is hard to concentrate and study effectively in these conditions, so AC’s aim is to construct a building for the girls, so that they have their own safe and secure classroom block with a surrounding wall.
A school building for these girls will transform their education and will encourage their parents to let them stay in school and complete an education; it will also inspire more parents to send their girls to school in the first place. More educated girls will improve the quality of family life and over time an educated population will help to develop the overall prosperity in this poor, isolated area. Please help to make this school a reality!
