Funds needed for Afghan school project

Education> Classes are currently being held outside

By The Staff

A Los Alamos resident is doing his part to raise funds for a school in Sarkar, Afghanistan. Bob Fuselier, a local veterinarian, is spearheading the local drive.
Even though their classes currently are held out in the open, boys and girls from Sarkar and surrounding areas of Helmand Province are now attending school for the first time in the village’s history. The $20,000 raised thus far through the generosity of people from Los Alamos is about $10,000 short of the amount needed to build the 320 meter privacy wall and well for the future school.
The donated wall and well has been leveraged by Dr. Mohammed Kharoti of Green Village Schools to win a commitment from the Afghan Ministry of Education to finish the classrooms and provide the teachers and staff for the future school.
The groundbreaking was recently held as Ferhard and Wakel, two engineers from the Ministry of Education, along with Dr. Kharoti and the elders from Sarkar marked out the location of the school’s privacy walls. Students played after their classes as parents and elders celebrated the day as a new beginning, one filled with the hope that is familiar to all parents: a better life for their children.
