AFCECO Needs Your Help Today!
The Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO) has been one of the most positive and unique developments in Afghanistan’s war torn landscape. For nine years children coming from extreme poverty, displacement, and violence have lived together in orphanages that are bastions of true democracy, places where everyone is equal and equally takes care of one another, where health and education take precedence over divisions of race and language and the climate of hatred civil war engenders. The investment by sponsors and donors over time has begun to pay off as the first generation of “graduates” now enter university while working for AFCECO. These young people are devoted to their homeland, to their people’s well being, and will invariably manifest the model of their orphanage’s peace, hope and integrity into mainstream Afghan society.
Right now AFCECO must weather a very difficult transition. Sponsorship has fallen off, and Afghanistan is going through a major shift as the international community moves out. In order not to lose the investment we have made in these children, we must rally our fundraising efforts to keep AFCECO orphanages from closing their doors.
