A Special Giving Opportunity.....

Thank you for your support. Your desire to make a difference in this world has made a difference, and we are so thankful that Afghan people have had their lives changed with your help.

We wanted to share with you a very special opportunity to give more than 100% from November 10 through December 1st. Please share this with those you know who care. During this time, we are privileged to receive additional matching funds from your donation through Global Giving of at least 30%. The need is still great. Afghanistan struggles to become a country of strength and stability.

Winter is coming to Afghanistan and can be brutal. As reported by the UN, more than 70% of Afghans are food insecure and approximately 8.5 million Afghans are on the verge of starvation. Although the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) works to empower women and other needy Afghans to provide for themselves and is not a direct relief provider ordinarily, AIL does provide food assistance to those who are in the greatest need, particularly in times of emergencies and in the winter. AIL is presently working with villagers to identify those who are the neediest as winter approaches. Your donation will help those who are in extreme crisis and need.
