Every year CAI publishes stories and photos from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan in our Journey of Hope publication. Get yours today!

You have probably heard the age-old adage, sharing is caring. This saying is very true for many of the communities we serve in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan where storytelling is an essential part of the culture. When stories are shared acquaintances become friends, friends become family, and families become stronger.

In this publication we have shared the stories of the people we serve with you. By reading them you, advertently or inadvertently, have become part of our extended family. We have shared, you have cared.
