Challenge

According to UNICEF, Afghanistan is among the worst countries to be a child in. The deteriorating security and coming harsh winter will not make it any better for the children or easier for the parents. Afghanistan is a country with so many children and not much of childhood. Nearly everything here is serious made by and for adult men and not much of fun and joy for children.

Solution

We are organizing a big Winter program for 900 Underprivileged (45% girls) in Kabul, Mazaresharif, Herat and Khost. We keep the kids warm and teach them social and life skills, by joyful activities such as games and circus arts and also classes such as English, Computer and Calligraphy. We provide the frames where the kids can be kids and gain the skills and the joy to transform their cold winter to a cheerful treasure for the rest of their lives.

Long-Term Impact

This is a unique chance for 900 children who are deprived of their childhood, a window to a brighter future, helping them to review the life, and make a better future free from traumas of the past. They learn different artistic, social and life skills as well as developing their personalities which all together help them to be creative and also in different ways contribute to their communities. These activities contribute in a large scale to children's culture in Afghanistan.
