Afghan Connection - Afghanistan

Wahdat school in the Takhar Province

'Today’s learners are tomorrow’s leaders and we are so grateful for this generous support.'
Sarah Fane - Founder, Afghan Connection
Afghan Connection funds and supports schools, teachers and sports opportunities, especially in rural areas. With their partners they have built 36 schools across Afghanistan, which currently educate over 40,000 children.

Years: 2007

In January 2007 the ALMT made a grant to build Wahdat school in the Takhar Province, Northern Afghanistan. It has 300 pupils (50 boys and 250 girls) and, at the time, there were no other buildings so all children had to study outside. It had been the coldest winter for 70 years so this was a crucial project to undertake.


Afghan Connection runs projects in health and education. It has assisted several hospitals and clinics with provision of refurbishment, equipment and medical training. It has funded salaries for an expatriate Obstetrician, Paediatrician and nurse, who give training to medical staff in Afghanistan. Afghan Connection has funded the construction of 15 schools and has provided equipment for over 20,000 children. It also runs a Twin School Project, funded by the European Union, and links 20 schools across the UK and Channel Islands with schools in Afghanistan.
