The following are the planed
projects for the next ten years.
*Purchase desks and chairs for the Junior High|
*Purchase a generator as
the classrooms are too dark
*Purchase teaching materials for Elementary
school (annually supply supplementary material, musical instruments, textbooks,
notebooks, pencils, and maps, etc.)
* Purchase books ( mainly from Iran).
Sending translated Japanese story books is also being considered.
for teachers salaries: for elementary school (50％), and junior high (100% for
three female teachers). The Afghan government should actually pay these salaries,
but we will continue assistance for up to 10 years until the government is able
to take over. When this is achieved, we will redirect these funds to other areas.
*If we are able to receive enough donations, we plan to purchase a 4WD
vehicle (good quality, used ones cost about 1 million yen). It would be used to
provide rides to the female teachers who live 2 hours away (on foot) as well as
for emergency situations. We also plan to use it as a book mobile.
