A new school is due to be constructed in Afghanistan, especially designed to teach around one thousand deaf children. It was the Afghan government that donated the land on which the facility will be built. It is hoped that construction will be completed by the end of summer 2010. America is lending a hand too. Projects between America and Afghanistan are what Hamed Wardak, an Afghan activist, tries to encourage through his work. Mountain2Mountain (a non-profit organization in America) is working together with the Afghan National Association for the Deaf (ANAD) to facilitate this project. As well, this organization will be raising money to see it happen. So financial and other aid from America is coming from: Mountain2Mountain, InnoVida Holdings and International Home Finance and Development; the latter two organizations will be giving large amounts of products and services for the constructions and a perimeter wall. But they will not be working alone; it truly is a joint US-Afghan venture since Afghanistan’s Quality Management Construction is giving a discounted price for its work in construction management. As well as teaching deaf children, it is hoped there will be a program especially for teachers who wish to learn the special techniques needed to educate deaf children. In addition, the deaf will be receiving education in agriculture.
