A new school helps girls in Kabul go from tents to the head of the class
BEFORE During the construction of the new school, the students were situated in tents outside of their former buildings where they waited patiently as their new school was built right before their eyes.

A new school in Kabul for girls was desperately needed. The female students were jam-packed in overcrowded, dilapidated buildings, trying to learn under horrendous conditions. USAID was there to help.
Providing design, funding, and construction, USAID built a new Sardar Kabuli High School. As this USAID project moved forward, the utilities were an intricate part of making the school a state of the art facility for the students to learn. Water, wastewater, and electricity were all part of the plan. USAID made sure that international standards were met and quality workmanship as well as reliable products were used.
Before entering the building, more than 6,000 students and teachers change into a clean pair of shoes, carried in their bags, to help keep this beautiful school clean.
The newly opened school has the solid infrastructure needed to help eager students learn for generations to come.
