"The HELA Project for Afghanistan" is a $100,000 fundraising initiative supported by Middlebury College on behalf of HELA, Inc. We aim to reach this goal by May, 2011. Donations to this cause are tax exempt, thanks to the generous support of Middlebury College. Funds raised through this initiative will support the building of the first girls' high school in Shabana's ancestral village in Laghman Province. To read more about this school, please click here. Shabana will build the school this summer after she graduates from Middlebury College. Girls in Shabana's ancestral village will be able to attend high school for the very first time.
Middlebury College agrees to provide the donors to the Fund a report on the project on a periodic basis, until the project is completed or the Fund is fully expended.
Donations are tax deductible. Please click here to donate online through the Middlebury on-line giving site.
