Father's Day

The Proud Fathers
The Proud Fathers

Dear GlobalGivers,

With Father's Day approaching, we wanted to share this recent photograph taken outside the daycare center in Balkh Province that you generously support. Many of the fathers of the young kids came to visit one afternoon. We found this image heartening, especially to see the gesture of support from fathers towards their daughters who are learning to read and write.

We also want to convey this feedback directly from Fatima, a weaver and the mother of four-year-old Arif: "His father is so tired when he reaches home, but still would ask Arif to read some of the poems or sing the songs that he has learned at the center and that gives him lot of satisfaction and starting laughing and feels so good and then kisses Arif and pray for him and for all of those who has made this possible for Arif and rest of the kids at the center.”

As we celebrate Dads, please know that you have the sincerest gratitude and prayers from Arif's father Noor for making this daycare possible.

Thank you - and Happy Father's Day!
