Thanks to The Big Give Christmas Challenge from midday 28th Nov to midday 5th Dec 2017 all online donations to this project up to £5,000 will be DOUBLED.

This is your BIG chance to change lives, bring hope, transform opportunities for the children of Bakhmal Basi School.  They study in the dust, in tents, in extreme heat and cold but with your help, Afghan Connection can build them a school.

This latest campaign celebrates and epitomises our work since 2002 – transforming young lives by providing the means to achieve their full potential.

£135,000 for Bakhmal Basi School, our 47th school project, will build: a 6 classroom building for 154 children, 5 latrines, a perimeter security wall, admin and guard’s rooms.

In the remote region of Rustaq, North East Afghanistan, where this project is based, it is often too far to walk to the nearest government school and many children, especially girls, are denied an education as a result. Children at Bakhmal Basi School currently study outside without even basic facilities such as running water or a latrine. It is particularly difficult for girls to stay in school in this environment as it is considered culturally unacceptable as they get older.
