Because of years of war and instability, the Afghan government is unable to provide quality education and safe shelter for children. More than 10% of schools have closed due to insecurity, warfare and targeted destruction, while most schools are housed in tents, mosques and private homes. 3.3 million children (or 32% of the school-age population), the majority of whom are girls, remain out of school. Furthermore, Afghanistan has the highest level of gender disparity in education in the world with only 21% of girls able to complete primary education. Mahboba’s Promise understands that education can help alleviate poverty for many children. We focus on providing access to safe houses and improving opportunity to education for underprivileged Afghan children, enabling them to acquire the skills needed to lead positive and sustainable change within society. We aim to break the cycle of poverty by supporting disadvantaged children – both boys and girls – in local communities in Kabul, Panjshir and Takhar.
Early education care assists both children and mothers. Children are able to develop the skills needed to transition into the formal schooling system, while mothers receive childcare options if they need to work.
As time moves on and children from our center grow older, we help young adults to develop life skills that will enable them to live independently.
We directly tackle the issue of accessibility to basic education by improving infrastructure and providing good quality education to children.
We provide safe shelter and improve the living standards of disadvantaged children.
Because of the gender disparity in Afghanistan, we aim to provide equal opportunity to education for both boys and girls.
Access To Education
Abdara Girls School was the first girls’ school to operate in the area, opening in 2003 with 20 brave students attending. Since then, the school has grown and now educates 350 girls from grades 1 to 12. Graduates from Abdara Girls School have gone on to pursue further education at university, and the school recently produced the first young woman from the region to go on and study law.
Our Kabul Hope House provides a safe shelter for vulnerable orphans, allowing them to focus on reaching their full potential. The center delivers support services, medical care, education and vocational training to children and youth in order to equip them with the skills needed to create a positive contribution to the reconstruction of Afghanistan.
The Early Education Center in Hope House Kabul is for children aged 0-7 years old. The center takes a combination of fee and non-fee paying students to offset the costs of tuition for those families who cannot afford it.
Our Hope House in Panjshir Valley provides safe accommodation and learning opportunities to orphans in the local area, as well as educational and vocational classes to youth and women in the surrounding villages.
Takhar Hope House has its roots in the Takhar earthquake of 1998 and the Jalozai refugee camp in Peshawar that followed. Like all of our Hope Houses, the children are provided secure accommodation, access to education and nutritious food.
