Summary

"From the Streets to Classrooms" project aims to break the cycle of poverty through education. These children often have to work or beg on the streets to support their families, and they miss out on the opportunity to have an education. With Afghanistan having the world's highest illiteracy rate, this project will offer hope and a new beginning. Students will receive uniforms, books, stationery, and transportation. We provide monthly food items to the families.

Challenge

Taliban took over the country in 2021. The country is going through a serious economic crises. Millions of children are forced to work and support their families. Thousands of children are on the streets of Kabul working or begging. Families can not afford to send their children to school. Because of the humanitarian crises after the take over of Kabul by the Taliban, families are experiencing unemployment and poverty is prevalent.

Solution

This project provides quality education to 20 street-working children who have been deprived of their right to education. It will empower these children to break the cycle of poverty and have a better future, it provides them with a chance to earn a high school certificate, pursue higher education, and eventually secure better job opportunities. Most importantly, it addresses the issue of the highest illiteracy rate in the world in Afghanistan by targeting the most vulnerable group of children

Long-Term Impact

The project will contribute to breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy in Afghanistan. It will empower 20 children who were previously deprived of their right to education. This project will have a ripple effect on the families and communities of these children by inspiring others to value education and invest in their children's future. This project aims to provide hope and a better future for the most vulnerable group of children in Afghanistan.
