2012 – Tagab Barg

Tagab Barg – Success of 2012!

Bamyan province is famous for its beautiful landscapes. However, studying outside in the open like the girls in Tagab Barg, in Panjab district, is a harsh experience. This region is the province’s third largest district and is know for its agricultural production.

Often children spend more time working in the fields than learning and the incentive to send their daughters to school is low when there are neither tables, nor benches to sit on.

The Nai Qala Association has built a school for over 500 girls in Tagab Barg, coming from dozens of surrounding villages. The Association has reached an agreement with the Ministry of Education for this project. The Ministry is providing ten teachers and studybooks for the school.

The school was formally registered with the Ministry of Education in 2002 but no building was ever erected.
