Help us to Build & Equip a School for 4000 Children
Rotarians in Canada are working hard to
secure children’s future through education
Your participation in the Afghanistan Challenge will overcome years of strife and destruction and will offer 4000 children a future filled with hope. Canadian Rotarians with international partners and supported by matching grants from the Canadian International Development Agency are working to build and equip a school in Afghanistan.
Your support will do more than provide the bricks and mortar needed to complete the project. A contribution to the Afghanistan Challenge will give 4000 students working in three daily shifts opportunities for a brighter future filled with the potential for
prosperity and free from the crippling effects of poverty.
This project is to celebrate the centennial of Rotary’s presence in Canada. Rotarians have a long history of successful implementation of international projects, which assure you donations will go directly to helping Afghan children.
Long-term Rotarians working with the Afghan Ministry of Education have assured long-term sustainability, and will provide fully trained teachers. Ongoing operational and maintenance funding has been secured from the Department of Education to ensure the 4000 students (boys and girls) who will be taught in this school, will continue to receive educational training.
A world half sick, half hungry and enslaved by poverty will never be a world at peace. Your contribution to help Rotarians carry out this international project goes directly to meeting the needs of Afghan children whose dreams for a peaceful future can be realized.
On behalf of those children, Canadian Rotarians thank you for your assistance and trust.
