Summary

Help the Afghan Children is addressing the root causes of violence and trauma by educating young Afghans who will embrace the principles of peace and work hard as adults to break this vicious cycle.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Ongoing war and conflict have left over 300,000 Afghan children killed, and millions more maimed, and/or traumatized. Many children today have lost a parent to violence. In certain regions of the country, various radical groups continue to threaten children, especially girls, from attending school. Many of these children have seen with their own eyes, their schools burned, their teachers murdered, and their parents (even themselves) threatened.

How will this project solve this problem?

Activities include peace education programs with Afghan schools, training teachers to become peace education instructors and role models, and conducting cultural exchanges between Afghan and selected U.S. schools built around peace education themes.

Potential Long Term Impact

Each peace education program directly benefits between 250-500 students per year, introducing them to the value of striving for peaceful solutions to problems, builds self-esteem and empowerment that will serve them well in adulthood.
