91-year-old donates five million to Afghan girls

An anonymous Danish woman donated millions in support of education

Five million kroner donated by a 91-year-old Danish woman will be used to establish a dormitory and two secondary schools for girls in Afghanistan.

Despite six years having gone by since the demise of the Taliban in the war-torn country, opportunities for girls are still considerably lower than those for boys.

‘I’ve had the idea for years and now that I’ve received the money, I want to donate it to establishing schools for girls in Afghanistan,’ she told Berlingske Tidende newspaper.

The woman who wished to remain anonymous donated the amount to the Danish Assistance to Afghanistan Reconstruction Technical Training (DAARTT).
