Sponsored by the Billes Family

The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan administers Danish School for Girls in the remote Western Afghan province of Farah. “Danish” means “knowledge in the Afghan language of Dari. RAWA broke ground on its construction late 2002 with the aim of providing classrooms and teachers for 150 girls at a time.

There is no other girl’s school in the area. Since 2003 the Billes Family has generously been funding Danish school each year, enabling hundreds of girls and young women to receive an education.
