I am pleased to share with you that your support for the education of street-working kids has changed their lives. To nurture the well-being of the students, we provide them with nutritious lunch, daily, and they stay at the school after lunch for an extra hour or two to receive assistance with their homework.

Two days ago, we asked Fazila, a 7 years old student, what she ate for lunch before being admitted to the school.  She said, “I was selling plastic bags on the streets all day every day so there was no time or money for lunch.  Most of the time, the shopkeepers gave me something to eat and sometimes when I was feeling too tired and hungry, I bought half a piece of bread and ate it. During the days, when I passed some restaurants, I smelled the kabab and always wished I had enough money to buy some for myself.  I want to study hard so I can have a good job and buy kabab for myself and my mother.” 

 This project will produce agents of change and future leaders.  Thank you for being part of this life-changing program

Dear one,

I am please to report that we have achieved our goal of identifying 20 street children who were collecting bottles from garbage, selling plastic bags, selling pens, collecting cans…etc, to support their families. School year, in Kabul, Afghanistan, starts on March 21, first day of spring. 

Students are enrolled at the private school. They are becoming familiarized with school environment and learning respectful and loving interactions with others.  They will receive uniform, books, notebooks, pens, coloring tools, lunch, and transportation from and to their homes. 

Ayesha,7 years old, was selling plastic bags on the streets.  She made 50 afs ($0.58) per day.  Her other siblings are also working on the streets because their father passed, and the mother is not literate.  She says, “I am very happy in school, and I want to become a doctor to heal poor people.”

Your contribution has already changed a life.  These children never thought of being enrolled in school let alone to a private school receiving the best education.  If it wasn’t for your contribution, these children would have spent their lives on the streets. 

With your support, we will be able to help these kids to realize their potential and to achieve their dreams.
