We Believe Education is the Path to Peace
AAE holds annual graduation ceremonies for each school. These ceremonies are held at MoE auditoriums, Kabul University auditorium or at the schools. Government officials, First Lady’s representatives, community members, students’ family members, teachers, and AAE supporters attend the events.
Most of our graduates pursue higher education. Some of them seeks employment to support their family and a small percentage stay home to help their children with homework and are proud of holding a high school diploma.
A few words from some of our graduates:
Firooza is 28 years old and has 5 children. She turned to AAE when no other school would accept her because of her age. “I can already feel the difference in the way I talk and discuss with others, compared to when I was illiterate. My life has changed a lot.” She is headed to midwifery school soon to help other women in Afghanistan.
Frozan is 26 years old and has 3 children. She says, “Initially, it was very difficult for me to come to school because I had no one to look after my kids. Sometimes I was sitting alone and crying, but those days passed. Thank God I am a graduate. Now, I feel very happy and confident, and can help my children.” She is following her dream of becoming a dentist and is going to dental school.
