Many of the children in the Vocational Training for Orphans program in Kabul used to spend their days washing cars, cleaning or begging. After being chosen for this program, they began to spend their days in classrooms, learning vocational skills such as how to tailor clothing, repair cell phones or make latticework, in addition to reading, writing, critical thinking and peace-building. Now 300 orphans ages 10 to 18 can look forward to much brighter futures, insha’Allah.
