Working with the Afghanistan government to build a school for Sheldon Village, the GHNI-Afghanistan and the village children are anxiously awaiting its completion. With spring and better weather around the corner, all are filled with hope. Here’s the latest on the school’s construction.

“Work on the school in central Afghanistan has been progressing well, although at a slower pace. It has not been without its problems, but overall the progress has been good.

“One of the main tasks recently was the installation of metal sheeting for the roof. This is about 90% finished.

“Inside, besides other work, there remains some work to be done with concrete. However, this specific job needs the green light from the Ministry of Education, which we have not yet received because of winter.”

“Unfortunately, winter arrived before the work could be completed and the deadline of November 30 was missed. However, this was not totally unexpected and the construction company could continue with some work during the cold months, such as building windows and doors. We hope that it should be completely finished by spring.”
