Faizullah from Afghanistan
Faizullah is a seven-year-old boy whose family lives in a settlement for internally-displaced people in Kabul, Afghanistan. Originally from Paktia province, he fled with his parents and four siblings as violence began to intensify in the area. With no formal schools nearby, Faizullah’s father—who is one of War Child’s community leaders trained in child protection and improving community safety—registered him in our community-based educational program that provides children with access to high-quality learning in safe spaces.
“I am really happy there is a school in our village and I love my father for sending me. I learn a lot at school, like reading and writing the alphabet, and even know what my rights are and how to protect myself.”
