Support Kids 4 Afghan schools

Summary

Kids 4 Afghan Kids (K4AK) was founded in 1998 in Michigan by teacher Khris Nedam, and her sixth grade students, to help kids in rural Afghanistan. Since then, the US students have helped raise the money to build four schools (including two girls schools) a deep water well and a medical clinic. Construction of a small hospital is underway. Kids 4 Afghan Kids is 100% volunteer, so your 100 % of your donations are used to educate children.

Challenge

Years of fighting in Afghanistan has left much of the country impoverished with high infant mortality, low life expectancy and serious malnutrition. We support girls' education, even though that has made our mission somewhat dangerous in the current political climate. For that reason, we can no longer include the location of the projects or photographs without endangering our teachers, students and parents.

Solution

Kids 4 Afghan Kids has been working in a very impoverished area of Afghanistan for 25 years. Our four schools' combined enrollment has grown from 465 to 2,400 students. We have graduated hundreds of students, including girls, and many of our graduates have then obtained good jobs in other parts of the county. Our new women's center provides job skill training for women. The clinic provides basic prenatal and health care. Our nearly completed hospital will provide even better care.

Long-Term Impact

The graduates have gone on to be nurses, midwives, pilots and college graduates. Many have donated to us for in gratitude for giving them an opportunity. Those who remain are more informed citizens, better educated, are better farmers with more food security and have access to basic health care services.
