Each month, AFCECO sends a newsletter to sponsors around the world. The newsletters make for inspiring reading, and also give us an insight into some of the practicalities of running a growing number of orphanages in a country facing such seemingly intractable problems.
We’ll be putting the newsletter online in Adobe PDF format so everyone can read it, starting with the February 2010 edition, which is a crackerjack!
- Trip to Italy
- Vital Voices award for Andeisha Farid
- Solace for Children
- New gymnasium and medical clinic
- Q&A: What will happen to the children when they turn 18, and how will they be able to return to Afghan villages and be free and equal, especially the girls?
March is the month of Nourz, the Afghan New Year. To celebrate, we have another inspiring newsletter to share:
- The children are returning for the new school year.
- New orphanages are opening in Herat and Jalalabad, plus the first houses for the older boys and girls in Kabul.
- Andeisha is heading to Washington, DC to receive the prestigious Vital Voices award.
- Q&A: Are there behavior problems in the orphanages and, if so, how do you deal with them?
[Oops! We fell behind publishing the newsletters online. We'll have the rest of them available soon.]
A celebration of the remarkable progress made by AFCECO in 2010, with six new orphanages; global recognition including a nod to AFCECO’s director, Andeisha Farid, by President Obama; and wonderful new programs from soccer for the girls to a thriving medical clinic.
