Green Village Schools' Advanced Education Center


Last week Dr. Robert Fuselier of the Afghan Sister Village Project (ASVP) in Los Alamos and PeacePal staff member Blake Batten returned from Afghanistan after visiting Green Village Schools' Advanced Education Center in Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province. ASVP and PeacePal have been supporting the work of Green Village Schools (GVS) in Helmand, where over the past year the Advanced Education Center provided English and computer/internet education to 250 local girls, boys, and teachers. Students at the center also participated in an internet correspondence program with Los Alamos High School students, promoting mutual understanding across cultures that are seemingly so different. Dr. Fuselier and Blake attended the graduation ceremonies and met with local officials and community members.
