    By - Toc Dunlap - Executive Director, Creating Hope International
    The Yacoobi Foundation Center is located in a very poor village on the outskirts of Herat City.  Prior to 1979, this was a farming area and few people lived here.  Now many people from other provinces have come to live in the area because of the poor economic situation in their provinces.  There are few...
