Key Worker Salaries

Friends of Aschiana UK heard that Aschiana was struggling to pay the salaries for essential staff. The jobs at risk:

1 COOK, who prepares the Hot Meal a Day for Aschiana’s 800 pupils every day.

2 CLEANERS, who keep the school’s classrooms, washrooms and corridors clean and hygienic every day.

2 GATE-KEEPERS, needed to monitor people coming into the school yard, to protect the children and the school, day and night.


1 DRIVER, who amongst other duties, takes vital staff to the IDP camps, many miles outside Kabul, where Aschiana runs the tented schools for boys and girls.

The monthly salary for each of these workers is the equivalent of £200, which they rely on for their livelihoods and that of their families.

These 6 workers, male and female, are proud members of the Aschiana community and key to the everyday running of the organisation. Friends of Aschiana UK has raised the money for their salaries for the past 2 years. Please help us to maintain that record and keep these essential people employed at Aschiana.
