JEN Presented Writing Instruments to Parwan Orphanage School

On November 18th, 2013, JEN presented 2,422 writing instruments which were donated by Chikuma International Exchange Association to 160 students at Parwan Orphanage School in Charikar, in Parwan Province, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

A on-site JEN senior field officer visited the orphanage that day to donate the goods, such as notes, pencils, colored pencils, mechanical pencils, erasers, and rulers to the children at the orphanage.
The left-over materials are being kept in the orphanage for incoming pupils.

Parwan Orphanage School is the only orphanage in the Province of Parwan and the orphaned students who go there are not only from the Peovince of Parwan but also from five other nearby provinces.

Chikuma International Exchange Association had supported the repair of its classroom, warehouse, canopy and kitchen, and also installed a toilet.

In addition, the Ministry of Public Health distributes a facility maintenance, education, and food allowances to the school. The Ministry also distributes clothes twice a year for the students.
However, since there was no writing instruments given to the school so far except donation from mosques, there has always been a shortage.

Under such conditions, students are very glad to have his or her own writing instruments thanks to Chikuma International Exchange Association's donation.

【Students Happy to Receive Writing Instruments】
