23 July 2013, Kabul, Afghanistan: Supreme Foundation has made a donation of essential classroom supplies and textbooks for students at the Karwan Elm Educational Center in Kabul. It is the third school since April 2013 to benefit from the Foundation’s ongoing education program, which provides support to disadvantaged students in Afghanistan.
Supreme Foundation donated text books, tables, chairs, white boards, notice boards and stationery school kits to the Center, as well as teacher supplies such as encyclopedias, multi-lingual story books and art materials. Karwan Elm Educational Center is an independent, non-profit, non-political institution that provides education to around 200 students, half of which study for free.
Farhad Nasiri, Director of the Karwan Elm Education Center, said: “Around 70 per cent of Afghanistan’s population is under the age of 25. This represents a great opportunity, as education can play a huge role in ensuring the future peace and prosperity of our country. We need support from organizations, as many students are too poor to receive a formal education, so we are grateful for the assistance of Supreme Foundation.”
Victoria Frost, Supreme Group’s Director of Communications and Treasurer of Supreme Foundation, added: “Supreme Foundation makes investments in projects that help children to develop the skills and knowledge to lead successful and sustainable lives. Our assistance has helped thousands of children and families survive amidst the ravages of brutal winters, wars, famines and severe deprivation. We are proud to work with community leaders to achieve real results and improve the lives of children.”
Supreme Foundation aims to alleviate hardship and improve the health, education and living conditions of disadvantaged children in conflict areas and remote regions around the world where Supreme Group operates. The Foundation has made substantial investments in schools, healthcare facilities, and housing developments in Bosnia, the Ivory Coast and Afghanistan.
