About the Roschani all-girls school

roschani maedchenschule

The private Roschani all-girls school on the outskirts of the provincial capital Ghazni is attended by about 500 girls from the city and from the surrounding villages. "Roschani" means "light" in the local language. The school was supposed to be a bright spot in these dark times when it was opened in 1999 with 20 students during the Taliban regime.

At that time, the school was founded with local initiative and, despite the persistent unrest, it has managed to stay open to this day. The Ministry of Education has recognized the registered Roschani school as a private school. At the beginning of 2017, the school moved into a new building to provide much better lessons in the well-lit, large classrooms.

Since the school ensures a high level of education, the Afghan Ministry of Education promotes the further education of teachers. This facilitates a broad high-quality education for the students.

The lessons are free for the students. Often, the girls walk long distances by foot to participate. They are given a school uniform, and school books, notebooks, and pens are distributed twice a year. All costs of the school are borne by the Afghan Women's Association.

Some of the graduates of the Roschani all-girls school are now studying agricultural science, business administration, journalism, literature and pedagogy or are training to become a nurse or midwife.


The school sponsorship is made possible by:
