Afghan Rural Schools

Dear Reader,

Afghan Rural Schools is a non-profit 501c3 organization supporting three rural schools, one for girls and two for boys, in Khas Kunar, Kunar, Afghanistan. 

 ARS has already provided electricity to the three schools and office of the Director of Education in the district. Our next project was to build classrooms for 700 students some of who, due to lack of enough space, are currently studying under a tent. The project was scheduled for Spring 2020 but was delayed due to Covid-19. We hope to implement the project this spring.

A few years ago, Dr. Abdul Qayum Safi, founder and president of ARS, thought about helping those less fortunate left back in his childhood community in Afghanistan and established this organization. He has donated all the proceeds from the sales of his book entitled, One Life: An Afghan Remembers, to this organization.

Please, join Dr. Safi and provide a grant or make a tax-exempt donation to change the lives of female students in rural Afghanistan. Our EIN is 46-3424470.

Due to Khas Kunar's proximity to the border with Pakistan, the security situation there seems to be too challenging for international donors to support projects like ours. However, we are in direct contact with the local community and obtain information about school needs from village chiefs, school administrators and government officials. 

We also save considerable amount of money by using the community provided land and free lumber to construct the building . Currently we have $78,000.00 in our budget and your grants or contributions will be used to turn the project from dream to reality and will be your holiday gift for the school.

Contributions can be made by credit cards and the donated money will be deposited in the special bank account for Afghan Rural Schools through Pay Pal.

We thank you for your support and look forward to hearing from you.


Abdul Qayum Safi, Ed. D., President
