1 Arabic-speaking class (Muslim)
Increase in the number of students from 50 in 2014 to more than 200 registered children in 2016
Water tower with a complete water supply system for several bathrooms, a sink and 2 showers

A generator that pumps water from the well to the water tower twice a week
Cleaning staff to clean all toilets twice a day to ensure proper hygiene conditions
Addition of a computer lab under construction (future PC training)
The APF school works in shifts between 7:45 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and has about 20 teachers, all of whom are certified as classroom teachers. All teachers do not receive a regular salary and work on a voluntary basis. Thanks to generous donations from JMS (Johann Müller AG / Schwermaschinenbau in Schmerikon, Switzerland) and the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich Obersee, APF has been able to significantly improve its school system, which has been acknowledged by all concerned. In appreciation of the highly valued support from JMS and the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich, it cannot be emphasized enough how grateful we are especially to Mr. Beat Jud, President of the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich, for his passion and commitment! APF would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
