TİKA Supports Pre-School Education Infrastructure in Afghanistan

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) completed the renovation and furnishing of the Bibi Khadija Tul Kubra Children’s Home for Orphaned, Deprived, and Poor Children in Herat and put the children’s home into service.

As part of the project implemented by TİKA, the walls of two buildings with a usage area of 1000 sq. meters in the city center have been renovated, and the buildings have been furnished to be used as children’s homes with a capacity of 200 children. In addition, landscaping activities have been carried out in the front yard of the children’s home, and a playground was built.

As a result of the conditions in Afghanistan, there are many orphans, as well as a large number of deprived children in need of protection due to various reasons such as poverty or parental substance abuse.

Even though there are orphanages in different parts of the city, TİKA built the first children’s home for the protection and education of deprived and poor children.

In his speech at the opening ceremony of the children’s home, Abdul Qayum Afghan, Provincial Director of Social Affairs of Herat, thanked TİKA and stated that he was certain that the compassion and affection that the Agency has shown to orphans and children so far would continue.

Program Coordinator Ali Ergun Çınar delivered a speech after Afghan, expressed his hope that the project would be useful and bring good luck, and said he believed that their work would be preserved.
