School Rehabilitation Project – Afghanistan
A part of the Initiative “Destination Schools Afghanistan”
Return of girls to education and schools in conflict-hit areas
In Partnership with La Chaîne de l’Espoir
In 2010, the Cuomo Foundation started supporting the rehabilitation of a school in the Panjshir Region, Afghanistan. This renovation is part of the “Destination Schools Afghanistan” program created and managed by La Chaîne de l’Espoir, which promotes the return of girls to education and schools.
Due to the deterioration and unsafe conditions of the Koha Tulkha school, parents were afraid to send their children there. The positive impact of the renovation was an increase by 37% of pupils for the new academic year in March 2011 (110 in total). The Cuomo Foundation has also funded and provided for the school, hygiene and school equipment kits (pens, books, uniforms, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc.)
