The children of Afghanistan are still suffering. The daily attacks of the indiscriminate U.S. drone programme, the continued oppression by militias and warlords and decades of conflict have left the infrastructure of the country in pieces. 

We are appealing for donations to buy equipment for schools across Afghanistan. All of the funds raised will go towards buying stationery supplies and desperately needed educational tools for deprived children in impoverished schools.

With the general population living in poverty; many are unable to provide even the basics for their families. Medical assistance to respond to the victims of drone attacks is most often not locally available and the education system is patchy at best.

 

Yet there is hope for these children. The hope is with the network of people that have dedicated their lives to the welfare and education of the nation. Selfless people like Wali Jaan.

Wali is a father, educator, writer and humanitarian. He and his family live under the constant pressure of drones, militias and warlords but they have steadfastly refused to flee their country and people. He has devoted his time to running the Adib Educational Caravan which specialises in developing and delivering free education workshops for young people in the country, as well as gathering thousands of books from neighbouring Pakistan to donate without charge to children, adults, schools, libraries and universities across Afghanistan.

Wali pleads from the heart: “We must share our knowledge, education and other things with those people who are in dire need. Help those poor children who are begging for a pen or a book, that live in unsecured areas and are at risk.”

 

Once the target has been raised each donor will receive a detailed email update including photos to evidence how each pound has been spent. You will be able to see exactly how your donation is directly going towards improving the lives impoverished children in Afghanistan.

The Adib Educational Caravan has an inventory of the items needed by each school. Suppliers have been chosen following evaluated quotations to obtain value prices and quality products. All goods bought will be documented and receipt of goods will be confirmed by the Head Teacher of each school and evidenced on paper and with photographs. Copies will be sent to the email address of every donor in an update email.

 

The children of today are the future of tomorrow. They will undertake the rebuilding, educating and securing the future of their nation. These communities need our help now if they are to survive and break free from the oppression they continue to experience.
