Speaking at a Girl's School in Bamiyan

Pax Populi needs your help. We believe that we can best contribute to peace in Afghanistan through education and economic development in the context of human rights. But this isn’t just a theory or a cute idea — we need to act on our ideas or they mean nothing. We need to be of help to real people. Right now we are trying hard to raise the money to provide two years of educational opportunity for Hila. We have a wonderful host family ready to open their home and their hearts. We have had a rousing support from the school leadership to welcome her. But we lack funds. You can help in two ways:

1. Provide funds: no amount is too small or too large. School tuition in the public school is approximately $9,000 for non-residents. The tuition cannot be waived. There are also additional costs such as airfare, health insurance, living expenses. We rarely ask for money, but this is one time when we need it. Please give.

2. Spread the word. Many hands make for light work. We still need $15,000. That could be 1,000 donations for $15 or 150 donations for $100. Let’s build our community of together get the work done.

We hear a lot about the need to help Afghan women. Our goal is to be of service to all Afghans, but we also agree that the women of Afghanistan need an extra hand. Consider these most recent statistics: only 12.6 percent of women are literate v. 43.1 percent for males. The average number of years of schooling for males is 11 but only 7 for females. Moreover, as reported in our previous post, according to study that came out in June, Afghanistan is considered the most dangerous country in the world for women.
