Haji Abad, a small rural community near the city of Birjand in the South Khorasan Province of Iran, is a rapidly growing area because of the influx of farmers whose lands are affected by severe drought. They are abandoning farming and migrating to areas closer to cities.

 

This rapid growth has put a great deal of strain on the area’s infrastructure, particularly schools in the nearby cities. Large numbers of students are crammed into small spaces with inadequate ventilation and lighting, making teaching and learning extremely difficult. As well, adequate space and accessibility in terms of distance which parents consider safe for girls to commute, are obstacles preventing them from attending school.

Now that the construction of these two schools for girls is completed, 300 students, who otherwise would end their education in Grade 6, have been able to attend high school since September of 2019.
