It is a daunting task but opportunity is before us. While Afghan Literacy Foundation is predominantly involved with providing students with financial support to stay in school through sponsorships, we take on other projects as well. In its tenth year Afghan Literacy Foundation (ALF) continues to relentlessly pursue a long-term vision to partner with three very impoverished schools: Bebe Mahro Boys School, Bebe Mahro Girls School, and Wazir Abad School in Kabul, Afghanistan to change the odds for these students. We have taken on many tasks and projects with the financial and moral support of donors and sponsors and are happy to report to you the results of our efforts.
The Gift of Water: Bebe Mahro Boys receive New Water Reservoir and Well
The Bebe Mahro Boys High School (BBMB) in Kabul was using a single hand pump well. In November of that year, the well stopped working beyond repair. As a result, the school was without water for 6 months. The school reached out to ALF after the Ministry of Education failed to respond to their requests for a new well and reservoir.ALF board approved the request and assigned the Kabul volunteers to take action to dig a well and construct the water reservoir for $11,500.
