For more than 40 years Afghanistan has been embroiled in one war after another. This has left the country's infrastructure, economy, and population crippled, leaving a prolific number of war widows and orphans without a support system. Our efforts will focus on providing some basic care and job opportunities to the orphaned children and widows in the northeastern Afghan providence of Badakhshan. This is a region in which the Taliban and Al-Qaeda are not welcome, but remains extremely isolated.
The Light of Pamir Foster Child network is providing a nurturing environment for otherwise destitute children as well as job opportunities for the local women who have few options to provide for themselves and their families.
We have met our original mission to take care of the basic needs of 20 orphaned children and 30 other extremely poor children in Baharak. Our Children's Garden turned into a Foster Child Outreach Program when our local manager rescued 10 orphaned children with Global Roots funds when their fathers were killed on the boarder of Afghanistan and Tajikstan. Our success in providing support to these orphaned children has prompted a community leader in nearby Faizabad to request our support.
