Help Aid Afghanistan for Education Rebuild after the Earthquake.

Devastation from the 2015 7.5 Magnitude Earthquake

Summary

A 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit northeastern Afghanistan in the Badakhshan province on Monday, October 26th, claiming more than 300 lives in Afghanistan and Pakistan, destroying many buildings, and displacing thousands of people. AAE has three schools in the Badakhshan province and will be working to help our students' families and the community rebuild their lives.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

3 of our schools and hundreds of students and their families, as well as the entire community, have been devastated by the earthquake in Badakhshan province in northeastern Afghanistan. Because of Badakhshan's remoteness, we are still receiving new information regarding the situation and will be updating as needed.

How will this project solve this problem?

By utilizing long standing community relationships, AAE will work to define the needs of students, their families, and the community to best help them rebuild their lives in a sustainable, lasting way. Badakhshan needs the support of local partners such as AAE to focus on long term recovery.

Potential Long Term Impact

Badakhshan is an impoverished province of Afghanistan and winter is soon approaching. Without fast action, the poor will be left without housing throughout a harsh winter. They are in need of long-term recovery that will last far beyond when the large aid organizations leave. We will be posting regular updates about how the funds are being used once we determine how they can best be used to support earthquake victims.
