AFGHAN ALL-GIRLS SCHOOL RELOCATES TO RWANDA

RWANDA TO HOST AFGHAN SCHOOLGIRLS

■ About 250 students, staff and family members of a privately-run School of Leadership in Afghanistan (Sola), are en-route to Rwanda through Qatar  to begin a “semester abroad”, following the takeover of their country by Taliban jihadists.

Shabana Basij-Rasikh, the founder of the all-girls school disclosed on Tuesday that they hoped to resettle temporarily and wanted to return to Afghanistan when the situation permitted.

Rwanda’s education ministry has tweeted a message of welcome to the Sola community.

Afghans have been growing desperate to leave their country, in fear of living under Taliban rule, and thousands have been evacuated to other countries.●
