Koran-wa-Monjan, Afghanistan. June 23, 2010. At 10,000 feet altitude in the HIndu Kush Mountains, a 10-hour drive from the closest city, Janagha Jaheed, CAI Field Director in NE Afghanistan, uses a template to mark the positioning of a star to be painted on the side of CAI's new Jamia School. The village's motivation was simple, said Mohammad Zakir, a village elder, teacher and foreman of the school construction project. "Without education nothing is possible. So we find the power and do our best," Zakir said. Photo by Ellen Jaskol.
