The Afghan Women's Association's girls' school in the village of Bojasar was opened in 2012. The first year immediately started with 300 girls, who were taught by 15 teachers in 11 classes until the end of secondary school. The association plans to receive up to 1,000 girls in the near future. The school has 21 rooms of which 17 are classrooms and a library. The girls spend their breaks in the large schoolyard which accomodates a sports ground and a drinking water well.
Poor farmers, who have hardly received any aid money so far, live in these remote rural areas, which lie about one hour from Kabul. The school is located at the center of the village of Bojasar. In the surrounding area, there are 22 further mud brick villages. Sweet grape vineyards and high, snow-capped mountains dominate the landscape, and in order to reach school, the girls have to walk for almost one hour. They receive free school uniforms, pens, notebooks and textbooks. The girls and their families are very excited about this opportunity, and older pupils can now also read letters and the like to their parents. This way, the whole families benefits.
