Summary

Kids for Afghan Kids has built schools, a clinic and a hospital for an impoverished village in Afghanistan. However, there is no place for adult women to develop job skills, learn about childcare, their legal rights, or how to read. This center would provide opportunities to educate women and give them a safe meeting place. It would give school girls a place to receive tutoring and provide space for the girls' school events and graduation ceremonies.

Challenge

Although we've been educating girls for years, many adult women have not had the opportunity to learn to read or even to learn about nutrition and childcare. They don't know their legal rights and have not fully participated in society. There is no place for them to learn sewing or other job skills that might help take them out of poverty.

Solution

This project will help women become more educated and empowered citizens and better mothers.

Long-Term Impact

Kids for Afghan kids uses education to raise a village from poverty. We build support for girls' education, a subject still controversial in much of Afghanistan. We empower girls and women to vote and participate in the political process. We help the village teach the children to re-build a stable, democratic society and continue to reject involvement in the Taliban or other violent organizations.
