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.

Six Afghan women work full time as carpet weavers in an AIL center hear Herat. These women get paid a living wage and some of the profits from the completed carpets, while doing work that carries on an Afghan tradition. They complete Kashani style carpets, and in the last several months have completed 3 carpets with a number of additional carpets in process.
