My story

[p][b]Please could you help me provide two female teachers to a northern Afghan school in need. This would help the Afghan village in which we filmed the lovable boy Mir for the film The Boy Mir - Ten Years in Afghanistan. [/b][/p][p][b]With the help of UK-based charity Afghan Appeal Fund, we wants to raise £2500 to help provide training and an annual salary for 2 women from the village to become the teachers of the one small local school.  At present, girls can only be taught until the age of 8 or 9 and though their parents want them educated, they are usually not permitted to continue in the hands of male teachers.[/b][/p][p][b]In the past we have brought the school a water reservoir, chairs and tables, roof repairs and even a school football kit - now it's time to provide these teachers. The young girls in the photo (playing with their first ever ball - can you imagine?) deserve better.  Some of these young girls walk 2 hours to school and 2 hours home every day - they are desperate to learn. Just a small amount from you can make this dream come true. Please help by donating to this page; it is quick, simple and will change lives.[/b][/p][p]To find out more about Mir's story please visit [url=http://www.theboymir.com/]http://www.theboymir.com/[/url] or watch the trailer here [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqSCqXA6u7Q]www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqSCqXA6u7Q[/url] [/p]
