Good news from our primary school in Kunduz AfghanistanIN AFG
We have good news to share with you:
The German Army on the initiative of Colonel Derichs and Lieutenant Colonel Marco Heidmann has once again organized a charity action for our Kunduz primary school.
Look what they wrote to us:
“As an advisory team in Kunduz, together with the leaders of the 217th Afghan National Army Corps and Mr. Zabi Majedi, we organized the symbolic delivery of 550 books to Vox Infantis Primary School today. Due to the security requirements imposed by the mandate, the event took place again in the 217th Corps PAMIR CAMP. As last time, this event was an absolute success from our point of view. 30 children received symbolically some of the books, we also distributed candies and other gifts like last time.The 217th Corps Commander also donated food items such as rice and oil, a lunch for reasons of safety not being possible. In the end we offered about 550 school books for the library, an air conditioner, two computers and a printer. ”
The money needed for this action was donated by the German association “Lachen Helfen” – (Help for Laughter), https://www.lachen-helfen.de/ created by former members of the German army in mission in countries at war like Afghanistan.
We are very grateful to them. They promised to introduce Zabi Majidi and our school to their successors, because their mission ends soon.
Our library is now full of books and air conditioned. Students come to study and read, often accompanied by their siblings.
In the coming days, our library will be further expanded with 160 books – 1 per child – thanks to the intervention of our friend Yasin Sawari of the Association of Afghan Students in Switzerland https://www.facebook.com/ASASVEREIN/, in Basel, offered by another association http://gahwara.com which prints books in Persian, Pashto and Uzbek in Kabul.
And finally, the 3rd good news:
Our local partner, Zabi Majidi, is in touch with Save the Children Kunduz to create 2 new classes in the afternoon. The 2 teachers will be paid by Save the Children. Students were selected from street children who do not attend any school.
I will keep you posted.
With my thanks for your faithful support and my warm regards
