this is the location of our children's garden

The recent slaughter of Afghan children by a US soldier created a very difficult situation for our projects in Afghanistan. After a great deal of conversation, our children's garden in Baharak -- a subset of our overal "Light of Pamir" Children's Home, was given provisional approval by the local cleric of Baharak. Vegetables will be planted this week and local children -- many of them orphaned -- will finally have a safe place to learn, heal and grow. If we can make this garden a success, we can get back to work to create a children's home where all orphaned and abandoned children can live.
