Students from Fort Defiance High School have been sending supplies to the town of Now Zad in Afghanistan. The supplies will go toward building a new school there.
The students' teacher, Bruce Hemp, sent WHSV pictures from the project.
Here you can see just one of the boxes of supplies the class gave to kids in Afghanistan. You can see sewing tools that the girls will use.
Here are a couple people in Now Zad, who received those packages. They say they're trying to start a school for girls in town and they appreciate any supplies they can get.
Here you can see some of the girls using some of those sewing tools. This is a make-shift classroom. It's just the start of what could be a new school.
Hemp says it's nice to see the girls starting to learn from the help of some Valley students!
