USAID helped to create a stable environment for education thereby bolstering a good feeling towards government
BEFORE With 1,000 boys and 350 girls, Tana School is the only school in the village. Since its establishment, the school has lacked proper facilities such as chairs and desks in an unhealthy environment contributing to irregular attendance and low enrollment.
30 NOVEMBER 2010 | TANA VILLAGE, AFGHANISTAN
Tana Village is located in Charbolak District 28km from the provincial capital of Balkh Province. As an insecure village, Tana has been a victim of insurgency and criminal activities for a long time. The insecurity has hampered social, economic, and educational development in the area and prevented development program and project implementation. In an effort to strengthen stabilization in the village and provide support to the local government, the project will help eliminate the existent gap between the community and the government arisen from lack of trust due to the government being unable to respond to the needs of the community.
Hanif, a student at Tana School said, “I am really happy for the chairs and desks in my classroom. I am very much encouraged to attend school, study and learn and my classmates have the same feelings. I would like to thank USAID/CBSG for the facilities provided to us. This way, other children will be encouraged to come and attend school with us.”
