Refugee Crisis in Jalalabad
Today, thousands of Afghan refugees are being forced back into the war-torn country they thought they had left behind. Many have settled in the border town of Jalalabad, overwhelming the city’s infrastructure. Schoolchildren sit in the open, without toilets, books, or shelter in all weather. CAI is raising fund to provide them with tent schools and supplies.
Korphe: The seed that
grew into a movement
Two decades ago the movement to promote peace through education began at the base of the Karakorum Mountain range. It started with a single school in the village of Korphe. This year, as CAI celebrates its 20th anniversary, we are pleased to announce that the village just received four new classrooms, a teacher’s office, boundary walls, and playground. Teachers now teach in the school they went to as children.
Boundary Walls: Dangers out,
The dangers of attending an unprotected school—poisoning, kidnapping, and arson to name a few—are so great that many parents forbid their daughters to go to schools. This was the case for 150 girls at CAI-supported Musakhil Middle School. Keep the children safe, by donating to our spring campaign.
