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.

Here is a story that shares the impact of your donation in the life of a Afghan female refugee in Pakistan: “My name is Noor I used to live in the Logar province in Afghanistan. There are 12 people in my family- myself, my parents, and 9 brothers and sisters. I am taking literacy and sewing classes in the women’s learning center. I want to learn because without knowledge, a person is blind and for living in society, knowledge is very important in our life. I was amazed the first time I could read the newspaper; it is an unforgettable memory for me. I learned sewing to support my family and help with my old father and my elder brothers. It’s very necessary for me. My wish is that one day I will be able to own a sewing shop.”
