Training Teacher Program

Improving the quality of education provided in the schools we have built.

Overall, the quality of education in Afghanistan in particular in the rural areas is very low. Some schools have no buildings, meaning that students are taught outside, sitting on the ground in all weathers. Many young people give up school altogether. To remedy this, NQA construction projects have provided school buildings in a number of villages.

The objective of the present project is to improve dramatically the quality of education and learning at schools in remote parts of Qara Bagh district in Ghazni province.
