Milestone Objective

Marzia is one of the Girls Orphanage students. She is 12 years old and has been in the orphanage about 2 and a half years. When asked about her experience at the orphanage, she replied, "It is impossible for me to compare my life prior to coming to this orphanage. The incredible changes in me as a result of my time at the orphanage surprises everyone around me. My mind, my attitude and my behavior have improved. I have the disciplined character which is respected by all people around me. In addition, which I can proudly say, I gained use of the English language. Before attending English class I didn't know the language. Not only did I learn words, but I can form sentences and express myself in English. I am greeting people in English and hope to further my English skills. I love my classmates and English teacher. I realize now that through my education I will gain strength to become a valuable member of my community and able to help my country.”

Milestone Objective

Four years ago we hired a widow as a cleaner for the Professor Sakena Yacoobi (PSY) Private School #1- Herat.  When she started, we found out that she had a small daughter, Zahra, who was not going to school.  Her mother said, I don’t have the money to send her to school, so we gave her a scholarship and last year her scholarship came from ConnectHer. She is now in the 4th grade and is the first in her class.  She is very little and very, very smart and creative.  She is the first in her class.  Recently, we had a school-wide competition in many areas.  The top students in each category received gold medals and the second-place students received cash awards.  Zahra won second place in two of the categories—art and calligraphy. And, even though she is young and very little, she was chosen to be the announcer for the ceremony because of her presence and speaking ability.  She was amazing as an announcer!!!  It brought tears to my eyes as I watched this tiny little girl confidently and with great assurance announce better than most adults. Zahra, thought I, is a future leader of Afghanistan.
