ACTIVITIES AND ACHIEVEMENTS FROM MEMBERS
AFRANE: 35 years of action in Afghanistan:
AFRANE (Amitié Franco-Afghane) has a long story of cooperation and action in Afghanistan.
It was created in 1980 that is to say that this year we are celebrating 35 years of presence in the country. Since 1996, we dedicated our attention to education.
Our goal is to offer a decent learning and teaching environment as well as to improve the quality of teaching. Our action encompasses construction and rehabilitation of schools, library and laboratory’s equipment, teachers’ training, inception and diffusion of teaching tools.
We are active in a network of 32 governmental schools in five provinces: Kabul, Parwan, Nangarhar, Bamyan and Herat. More than 65 000 students benefit from our action.
It’s important for AFRANE to engage the communities in our activities.
That’s why we work closely with the headmasters and teachers to better understand their needs. Local communities through the Shuras and students’ parents are fully involved in the development of our projects. They participated, providing materials or labor to each and every construction we ran.Our pedagogical activities:
AFRANE trains teachers in Kabul, Charikar and Jalalabad in Dari, Pashto, Mathematics and natural science in partnership with the CNS. Seminars are followed by regular assessments of the teachers by AFRANE’s pedagogical team.
In Waras, in Bamyan province, three-month winter training is organized every year for school teachers. In 2015, more than a hundred teachers will benefit from an academic compensatory in Dari, Pashto and Mathematics.
For the fourth year, AFRANE decided to help students to get higher education. Preparatory classes to the university entrance examination are organized in Jalalabad, Charikar and Waras. Hundreds of students participate, mostly girls, and its success rate is quite important.
AFRANE develops pedagogical material widely used in our partnering schools. We also provide seminars for teachers of other NGOs, as Womanity or ADRA for example.
AFRANE also supports French language teaching in 4 schools (3 in Charikar and 1 in Jalalabad); with 7 teachers (AFRANE provides indemnities and a pedagogical support from our FLE coordinator in Kabul).Our equipment, rehabilitation and construction work
A good education system means well-trained teacher but also a good learning environment. That’s why we help with library and laboratory equipment’s, school rehabilitations and building constructions.
This year we achieved the construction of a female dormitory inside the Faculty of Education of the University of Nangarhar in Jalalabad. This building will allow 100 girls to attend university in good conditions.
