The Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO) is in an emergency situation. This Afghan non-profit organization based in Kabul and devoted to shelter orphaned refugee children from the regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan, is running out of budget: their funding for AFCECO Learning Centre through USAID hasn´t being renewed. In words of the Founding director Andeisha Farid, “AFCECO New Learning Center had been an amazing opportunity for the over 500 children in the Kabul orphanages. The academic support, the music program, art program, leadership workshop, computer training and language training programs had raised the children’s competency and capacity level far above anything they could possibly have gained without the center”
Going through a very difficult period, Ms. Farid has stated that “without the New Learning Center (NLC), the children will once again be sitting on the floor of a room in their orphanage, getting whatever additional instruction we can somehow manage to rotate around the neighborhood”. The Founding director has stressed the importance of maintaining the NLC, since it provided added security for the children due to its inherent centralizing of the programs.
This is a call for help, what means that “to secure the NLC lease and gain breathing room to seek future funding, to have the children continue their beloved curricular and extracurricular programs at, AFCECO must reach $59,850 by 27 February.
