Project / Arab Khana High School  / We have completed our goals for this project

Project Story

The Directorate of Education of Jawzjan Province, in early 2010, approached ADRA Afghanistan, A Better World’s implementing partner, by submitting a list of needs that detailed the constraints and inadequacies faced by various educational institutions in Shebergan. In following up with the needs assessment, A Better World identified Arab Khana High School as one that fit the criteria of providing equal educational opportunities for both boys and girls. Arab Khana caters to 1,500 girls and 1,603 boys, and has 81 teachers. Since then, we have built a 12-classroom school building, installed a new library and lab, and renovated 13 classrooms.

About the project

The Directorate of Education of Jawzjan Province, in early 2010, approached ADRA Afghanistan, A Better World’s implementing partner, by submitting a list of needs that detailed the constraints and inadequacies faced by various educational institutions in Shebergan. In response to the request, the ADRA project office in Shebergan carried out an extensive assessment in following up with some of the schools that were enlisted by the MoE. Among the findings, ADRA observed that 90% of the schools suffered from lack of basic infrastructure like: classrooms, furniture, libraries, laboratories, and toilets. Besides this, ADRA also observed that most teachers had not received a University education and had no access to quality training programs.
