Young Exhibitor Showcased

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

New School in Rural Afghanistan Rises Slowly but Surely

In Afghanistan, as pretty much everywhere else in the world, construction projects don’t always adhere to an anticipated schedule. And one very important project for Sheldon Village* is the creation of its own school.

Anticipating a Successful Year of Poplar Growth

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

This year will be another good year for our trees. We have enough water to irrigate all the trees. They look very beautiful, especially this time of the year when the trees are bearing leaves.

Pieces of History on Display

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

Last month at the National Gallery, we had a very unique exhibition at the Garden of Peace and Hope. *Nazim is a young man who collects all kinds of coins. He has a collection of historical Afghan coins, historical coins from all over the world, as well as many other interesting objects. More than 100 people attended the exhibit. All who attended had a wonderful time and were impressed with this young man’s collection.

Thank you,

Students Await School Completion

*Sheldon Village, Afghanistan

**As’ad is a fourteen-year-old boy living in Sheldon Village. Every time the construction staff arrive to work on the school, he becomes so happy, wishing that one day soon he and his friends may attend the new school together.

Usually, when we as GHNI staff visit there, **Azzam asks questions. “Why is the work of the school not finished? When will be the inauguration?”

Youth Inspired by Computer Knowledge

*Bendall Village, Afghanistan

There is a season for everything. During the planting season, most children help their parents get their crops planted. It is no different in this part of Afghanistan. However, one student is applying what he learned this past winter at the computer centre in Bendall and is putting it into practice. More than that, he has started a small business.

Education Encourages Sustainable Communities

School Site, A Sight to be Proud of

*Sheldon Village, Afghanistan

Our school is a masterpiece project in Sheldon Village. We recently visited the site and saw that the doors had been installed. Tens of boys and girls wished to come to their new school, because they suffered many years walking four hours to arrived at school every day.

If the building of the school finishes this year, it will be good news for all the villagers. We are hoping the contracting company will complete the work as soon as possible.
