Newsletter March 2018

A word from the President

The month of March has been a very special month for the Nai Qala Association. We had the privilege of holding an exhibition in the city of Geneva of photos taken by Ms. Haris Coussidis showing Nai Qala's work in the central regions of Afghanistan. These photos are a symbol of hope and a better future.

During the winter, while the construction of Sokhtagi School and the early childhood education program are suspended due to cold weather and snow, and the children are on holiday, our capacity building program continues to run very actively.

The very brave Nai Qala teachers have been in the village of Zeera Gag since December and they will stay there until the beginning of April at temperatures of under – 10 to 20 degrees. They teach from 8:00 to 16:00 every day. Over 150 girls and boys attend courses on Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Each day those girls and boys walk one hour in the cold weather of icy mountainous paths, to reach the village and one hour to return home.


What keeps their mind motivated and their hearts warm?

Well, it’s the hope for a different future. How can they change their current difficult lives? They know it’s a long journey, but it has to start at some moment. They are the ones who are taking such an important first step for their communities and families.

We all would like to congratulate all these courageous boys and girls and wish to tell them that we are all proud to be part of their struggle and efforts.

Taiba Rahim, 

President of the Nai Qala Association

Under the auspices of a rather capricious weather, Nai Qala was present in photographs on the lakeside in Geneva, from March 5th to 25th, 2018. The exhibition was launched with a press conference, opened by a debate and covered by Swiss and foreign media.

The exhibition presented the public with the independent photographer, Haris Coussidis's view on Nai Qala's activities in Afghanistan.
