Education Initiative Overview

August 8, 2011

Marshall Plan Charities is working closely with the Ministry of Education, the village leadership of Afghanistan and the Afghanistan Embassy in Washington DC on plans for a  school in the village for Khairabad.   The new school will be constructed on the west side of Highway 1 in the Shawz Bazaar area. This location provides easy access and will provide educational services to 400 students from Khairabad who currently have limited to no educational opportunities.  We will be updating you on the specifics of the clinic plans after the Marshall Plan Charities team returns from our site trip to Khairabad on August 5-13.  We will be partnering with the Lamia Foundation to provide supplies and books to the school.  In addition, we hope to use the school in the evening for adult education programs.
