In remote parts of Afghanistan, young girls are the first in generations to go to school.
This gift will provide a girl with a backpack filled with classroom essentials including notepads, pens and pencils, a ruler, sharpener and eraser. She will also receive a hygiene kit with a towel, soap, shampoo, toothbrush and paste and a hairbrush so girls are prepared for a day at school.
“It is a wind of change to see the progress of this work and how far-reaching it is” Mrs Nazar, Headmistress in Nagahar Province, Afghanistan.
