Canada eSchool to sponsor courses for ACCC students

January 28th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Canada eSchool has generously agreed to sponsor eight online courses for students at the Afghan-Canadian Community Center (ACCC). The courses will include subjects such as English, Science, Health, Math, and Civics, and are accredited by the Ministry of Education in Ontario, Canada. Not only will the eSchool’s classes provide valuable education for ACCC students, they are also accepted by Universities and Colleges in Canada and around the world.

The courses offered by eSchool are very flexible, offer continuous enrolment, and can be accessed from anywhere at any time, making them ideal for students on the other side for the world. Programs such as this make it possible for students in Kandahar to get access to education that they would otherwise be unable to receive. This kind of education enables students to obtain valuable jobs with local and international employers and allows them to give back to their community.

Canada eSchool has also agreed to provide further courses to ACCC students at significantly discounted rates. The Afghan School Project is proud to partner with the ACCC to sponsor students in Kandahar for this unique opportunity. To help, please visit our Donate page.

Together with their affiliate school, Canada eSchool is one of Canada’s largest private online learning programs for international secondary students, and provides courses which are accepted by Universities and Colleges in Canada and around the world. The initial group of ACCC students is expected to begin their classes by mid-February.

    A suggestion:
    Are there any plans for vocational training at the school? I was thinking that computer skills could be quite useful: graphics, accounting, etc… Students with these skills could attract sustained interest from Western employers.
    I work at in an advertising oriented business and I was thinking that we could hire graduates to work on ad designs to accomodate our graveyard production schedule which is not an easy shift for us to fill here in Canada.

    Hi Alan,

    The ACCC has an extensive vocational program, and teaches several computer and graphics classes. We’d certainly be interested in discussing employment opportunities for our students – please contact me at [email protected] so that we can discuss this in further detail.

    Regards,

    Ryan
