Secondary school Ghulam
Mohammad Farhad

(since March 2010) Handover/Inauguration: March 2007

The first project in Pul-i Tscharchi (a community
lying 40 km east of Kabul, called “the village of the poor”), whose population had suffered a great deal during the 23-year-long war.

Although a village school existed, the building, in part without windows and doors, had only eight classrooms and four toilets. Due to the crowded conditions, the 3,500 pupils had also to be taught in two UNO-supplied tents, as well as – regardless of the extreme weather conditions in summer or winter – in the open air, in three shifts.

Moreover, the building stood unenclosed on its site and had no security fence and was thus accessible to all.
