SPONSORSHIP FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL
Sponsorship pays the family of working children what would have been earned on the street, freeing them from their jobs so they can attend school.
The next step for children who have shown academic and leadership promise. Your donations boost their potential as future nation builders and pay for sponsorship, tuition, school supplies, books, uniforms and transportation.
Roya’s School grew out of the need for young girls living in a village outside of central Kabul who desired to learn English and have computer training. These young girls were not permitted to travel alone to the city so ZF brought the school to the village. ZF currenty operates 3 Roya’s Schools – one outside of Kabul and the second in Mazar e Sharif and the third in Parwan province.
Being computer literate is a distant dream for Afghanistan’s poorest children. ZF launched the Computer Learning Center at Aschiana in 2013 and has been inundated with requests from children eager to learn. We continually need good computers which cost about $430 each. For $35 per month you can fund the purchase of a computer and give a working street child the skills to make a better future.
The Screening Room gives students and local Aschiana management access to Skype, online classes and the opportunity for donors and children to “meet” each other. ZF plans to replicate the Kabul Screening Room at Aschiana centers in Mazar e Sharif and Herat.
COMPUTER CODING CLASS
“Computer coding is the new literacy of the 21st century.” Coding classes, started by ZF and in the pilot stage at the computer center at Aschiana in Kabul, teach students the preliminaries of coding. Thus far, the pilot program has been met with great enthusiasm and will be expanded in 2015.
THE SWEATER PROJECT
THE GIFT OF WARMTH
Keep a child warm this winter for $20 and provide income for the women who hand knit the sweaters, the suppliers in Kabul who sell the yarn and Aschiana, which provides the space and management. Sweaters are distributed to the neediest children.
