The testimony of Safeullah

This young student’s name is Safeullah and he attends AfD’s school for street-working children in Kabul.

Safeullah’s father was killed in a suicide attack; to support his family, he washes cars on the street and sometimes sells plastic too. He lives at his uncle’s house with his mother, two brothers and three younger sisters.

“Sometimes we have food to eat and sometimes we do not. When I was younger, I could not go to school due to our family situation and I had remained illiterate; I am happy I found AfD’s school and registered! Since I started school, I have been very happy, I have learned to read and write, I can calculate the amount of money I earn and I can use it in the proper way. AfD’s school is a very good place for growth and development; here we can study, learn new things and eat healthy food. There have been many positive changes in my life. Now I attend the 3rd grade. I can read and write stories on my own and I am happy to say that I can teach my siblings what I learn!”

Safeullah attends AfD’s school for street-working children in Kabul, along with about 200 children, boys and girls aged between 5 and 15 years. The education program is currently active in two locations in the greater Kabul area. 

To continue providing a safe place for children like Safeullah, AfD needs your support!

Every donation counts!
