Fwd: Progress in Helmand

Green Village Schools (www.greenvillageschools.org) has sent 8 boys who
completed our eight grade school to Lashkar Gah to complete high school with
an emphasis on science, math and computer use.

Because no suitable housing facilities were available, we are teaching our
eight girls graduates in the village. The principal of GVS is in charge of
their program which will be similar to the one the boys are undertaking in
high school.

Our success is due to a lot of hard work by our teachers and staff, the
wonderful support of our donors, especially the 41st Brigade of the Oregon
National Guard and our working board here on Portland, OR. We started with
15 boys and girls in two rented rooms in 2001 and expect to enroll over
1,000 students in fall 2007.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop through your email and the new Google
