After the school year 2017, the students of the Hushe Valley are enjoying (with temperatures of -20 º) their holiday period before joining their classes in spring. This is the moment that we take advantage to promote our campaign of 50€ donations that cover the costs of access to a school for children without financial resources for the whole school year. Today we have passed € 16,000 which guarantees scholarships for 320 girls.

Given the scarce schooling throughout the valley, especially in the case of girls,this policy that we set in motion is fruitful because it generates an effect which also encourages the schooling of boys. From levels of schooling of 50% in 2006 we have gone to 88% in 2015 and 94% in 2016, which is clear from the academic report corresponding to the 2016 course. We look forward with great interest to the report of 2017, convinced that the schooling of girls and boys between 13 and 14 years has far exceeded 95%.

Despite all the advances, the lack of schooling affects girls even more, and in 2016 there were 78 boys and 126 girls who were out of school. With the help of all of us together, we can try to achieve 100% schooling of all children.
