Dear friends,

It has been some time since I last sent a letter to update you on the 100 Classroom Project. There have been new developments in my personal journey, and great progress in our work in Afghanistan as well. 

After completing my Master of Public Health from the University of Alberta in 2014, I went to Northern Iraq as the Project Manager for a humanitarian relief project providing relief items to 30,000 displaced people. I am now attending the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine – it is exciting to fulfill this dream too!

The 100 Classroom Project so far has achieved a lot in spite of the insecurity that many Afghans face. Since 2010, we have constructed – with full support from the communities:

71 classrooms
at 7 schools,
benefitting 15,300 students.

There were some delays due to an election and then we needed to find new contractors and a project manager to achieve better value for our declining currency.

We are back on track – in 2015 we have been moving forward:
•  13 classroom were renovated at Arab Khana
•  a new 10 classroom school at Qara Kent was completed
•  a new 10 classroom school is under construction


This is an exciting milestone with only 29 classrooms to go until we complete the 100 Classroom Project! This means we just need to build three more schools to achieve our goal! 

One school $130,000 CAD
(10 classrooms + 4 rooms for teachers, lab, library)

One classroom $13,000 CAD

We have achieved so much together and we are nearing our goal! Let's provide a safe place to learn for even more girls (and boys) so that they will have a chance to be literate and contributing members to their society. 

Thank you for your ongoing support. Please be in touch if you have questions or would like to help.
