This school was founded by a group of Afghan refugee students from Tehran University. The school caters to the disadvantaged children of Afghan immigrants who need an education and it employs teachers and staff who are also Afghan refugees in search for better employment opportunities.
We started our involvement with the school by paying all the expenses for supporting 70 students. After a while we realized because of the lack of funds and financial assistance from the government, the school was not properly equipped as a safe and healthy learning environment for students. We decided to work together with school authorities, including the Director of the center, to help upgrade the school building for its 140 students. Most of these Afghan immigrant students were denied education in Iranian public schools and our objective was to help create a space for them to continue their educational journeys. Since 2018 KCIS has been the biggest sponsor of the school, providing half of expenses.
Some of the major activities for this project included:
- Organizing extracurricular classes such as English classes
- Starting Child education workshops for educators
- Equipping and refurbishing the school building
