Education Helps Afghanistan’s Youth Rebuild Their War-Torn Nation

It was once called “the Burned School” and children weren’t able to attend classes. Just like many other things affected by years of conflict in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, Nahid Shahid School was the victim of violence that destroyed many aspects of the country.

But things changed for the better, and today, the school is not only renovated and back in business, but also trying to meet the increasing demand for education. The school operates daily in four shifts, serving 6,200 students.
