ASCHIANA CRISIS APPEAL

Our work continues

On the streets of Kabul this morning, young girls made their way to school after selling papers on the streets. Older girls and women joined their tailoring and embroidery classes. In the afternoon, young boys left their work on the streets and walked into school.

After the Taliban takeover, Aschiana was one of the first NGOs permitted to continue operating under the new regime. Girls and boys are now segregated in different shifts, but they are all receiving the same, full education. Male and female teachers are all back at work. This has given a sense of hope to these traumatised and vulnerable children.

IDP CAMP SCHOOLS

Not only is Aschiana’s main school in Kabul open, but also its schools in the IDP camps – camps for displaced people – in the wastelands far outside Kabul. Here the children get the same chance of an education and a hot meal a day.

As Afghanistan faces a looming economic and humanitarian crisis with more than half the population suffering acute food insecurity and the onset of harsh winter weather, these children desperately need our support. Aschiana is where they come to feel safe, it’s their sanctuary and their hope for the future.

Please help us to continue our work, supporting Aschiana through this difficult time.

On behalf of the children and their families, thank you.
