More Afghan Children Getting Enforced to Child Labor
By Abdul Sami Zhman - Project Leader
This is the first report of this crowd-funding project. The project was registered in the unprecedented times of coronavirus and therefore, has not met its initial milestones yet. CPD would like to thank you again for supportting our project especially in the difficult times of coronavirus and now, during the socio-political power shift in Afghanistan. Same as you, we are also concerned of the future of our social empowerment programs and are regularly observing the situation. For the time being, our decision is to keep the project active and meanwhile, have the option of project amendment in future, if needed.
We, the team CPD, are looking forward to your generous support during these critical times. Afghans suffer extreme financial problems due to severe shortfall in economic activities and financial restrictions enforced on Afghanistan by the international community. Financial restriction and freezing reserve funds of Afghanistan have directly affected the people and contributed to nation-wide food insecurity and paralyzing public service delivery by the new regime. Current situation push more children to forced labour in order to assist in their families' livelihood during the economic crises. All these have unfortunately deprioritized social change development programs including our project aimed at improving hygiene of Afghan street children in Kabul city. As before, COVID-19 and its consequent restrictions is also preventing implementation of social change programs. In such a scenario, priority comes to survive the organization and the minimum level of its operations until the situation gets improved.
