Anna’s Educational Center

Kabul, Afghanistan

This Educational Center has been initiated by Anna Hacker, a self-proclaimed international expatriate who has taught in schools everywhere from Algeria and Brazil. She chose to make a model Educational center that opened its doors in March 2011. The center vision, plans, and reality took Anna Hacker 7 years to fund raise and build. It is still fully functioning with 200 students, ranging from grades 1-4 following the government curriculum each day. Initiatives of the center focus on servicing street working children and vulnerable women, providing literacy and skill experience, professional development for the center staff, and giving children ages 7-18 basic essentials.
