About the project
Fatemi Balkhy High School was built by a single donor who, since its construction, has not been in contact with the administrators at the High School. As a result of the high demand for girl’s education, the High School is now full beyond capacity with over 5,000 girls attending each day in two shifts. As a result of this increase in enrolment, beyond the capacity of the building, there are about 5 tents set up behind the school building in which the students sit on mats on the dirt to study.
In answer to the request for benches, A Better World provided 115 benches to furnish the classrooms. Each bench seats two to three students.
