Afghanistan – we could open our school again end of August 2021IN AFG
At the end of August, we got the permission from the new taliban responsible at the Education Ministry to open again our school, because it’s a small structure. The public schools, much bigger, were still closed because of Covid and opened later.
Here you see the girls and the goys happy to come back to school…
the boys playing football and the girls having fun at our playground…
appreciating their food, the good lunch prepared by our cook and his assistant…
and of course following attentively the lessons given by our teachers, all back!
Here some students say “Thank you Hildegard, I have good”. I represent of course all of our members and donors whom we thank for their support.
By mid-September, our manger and the staff organized a cleaning action in the courtyard. Everybody is ready for action! Unfortunately, the video I received is too big to upload it here.
And now, a very good action organised by the talibans:
After bringing back around 135 families who had fled to Kabul and were surviving as good as they could in the parcs of Kabul, often without water and food, they bought basic food items – like we did before – and distributed them to these families in our courtyard.
And for my 80th birthday, end of September, our local partner organized a nice birthday party in the school!
In October, we could send extra money for buying warm clothes and shoes for the colder season, not really for winter yet. That will be done later. Have a look at the video
