Dreams Materializing

*Sheldon Village, Afghanistan

Day after day, Sheldon Village residents are becoming more hopeful about their nearly completed new school. It was a dream for these villagers to have a school closer to their homes.  

Workers have painted the inside and outside walls. We hope the doors and windows will be installed before winter, and that the desks and chairs arrive from Kabul before the pass is closed. If this happens, the students will be able to start in the year ahead.

Because they currently have no school in their village, students walk four hours per day to go to another one. They are so happy to see continuing progress. We also see that parents and teachers are happy about their children’s future.

Meanwhile, many Transformational Community Development lessons are being taught to the people of Sheldon. Inspired by the school project, they have taken ownership of their problems and are helping each other by sharing their ideas and natural resources.

Your continued support is bringing these children hope for their future. Thank you!
