Education is Key

“Ali Khidadad is a boy who lost his father a few years ago. He is living with his uncle.  He is registered in English class.  His teacher says he is very clever and really wants to learn English.  He always gives thanks for the director of this center.”

These are the kinds of stories we see every month.  Young men are entering classes and not giving into some other way of life despite their circumstances.  They know that education is key to bringing their own lives and their country forward.

Thank you to all of you who supported this project this year.  You are making a difference.
