Project Rise and Rebuild
– Sayid Al-Shuhada School – Kabul
On May 10th, 2021, three horrific explosions took place targeting schoolgirls in Kabul, killing more than 90 children and wounding over 150 more innocent civilians. The Sayed Al-Shuhada School, hosting classes for boys in the morning and for girls in the afternoon, provided learning opportunities to over almost 14,000 students overall, with 7,500 female students enrolled in afternoon shifts. The area of the school attack is home to a large community of Shiites from the Hazara ethnic minority, which has been frequently targeted in the past by armed militants in Afghanistan. Thousands of innocent schoolgirls, already facing significant barriers to education amidst the escalation in conflict in Afghanistan, now face additional challenges in returning to learning in Kabul.
Creating an ICON of resistance, we are going to send a message “you may try to destroy but we will BUILD BACK BETTER”, although the school was not badly damaged, we would like to provide better facilities for the students in a very impoverished area of Afghanistan.
We are going to try and build the following facilities
- LIBRARY – Syeda Khadija A.S. Library
- COMPUTER LAB – Syeda Fatima Zahra A.S. Laboratories
- MEMORIAL PLAYGROUND – Syeda Sakina A.S. Playground
- WASH – Water Sanitation And Hygiene facilities
- SECURITY UPGRADES
- WELL – Al Abbas ibn Ali A.S. Well
