AFGHANISTAN Schools
In the Nayzan District there is a total of 17 schools, 15 are Primary and two High Schools.  There are 1,400 students in the district.  There are two class sessions held daily.  The boys attend school from 7am to 12pm and girls attend 1pm to 4pm.  The common question is why is there a big difference with 15 primary to only two High Schools.  The reason is the drop-out rate is 98% or higher for children going into higher learning (High School), it increases even more when going to a University or College.  Most children don't have the basic school supplies to attend the Primary Schools and tend to share with each other.  Once a child graduates from Primary School basic school supplies are less affordable.  For poor children school supplies are even harder to obtain.
Apache Troop 3-4 CAV has given five 18X15 tents to the schools to help with the children who sit outside for classes.  There is a proposed project to acquire 15 more tents before the coming of winter to help the children and protect them from the outside elements.  What the school's director of education is requesting is help with basic school supplies paper, notepads, pencils, pens, and notebooks.  If possible backpacks or carry bags for students.  Most children tend to use a common plastic grocery bag to carry their books.
In the Achin district there is a total of 2,000 students, 1,700 in Primary and 300 in High School.  At this time it is unknown how many total schools that are in the district.  There is a high request in Achin for basic school supplies for the students like there is in Nazyan.  Little is known about their education system at this time.

If you are interested in helping these children please mail some supplies to:
