Follow up on Mehan Orphanage Move Campaign

The move of AFCECO’s Mehan Orphanage has begun! We have rented a house and are in the process of making it a home for the girls. It is a big and a beautiful house with a large yard that will allow the girls to enjoy the outdoors in a secure environment. We are also working to ensure that the necessary security measures are in place.

Because of your support and generous donations, the Mehan Orphanage will be in a more secure location. Though the extremists continue to attack our city, you are providing a safe haven for the children. A home that offers sanctuary from the violence and fear that can consume daily lives. We are extremely grateful.

AFCECO Winter Academy

AFCECO Winter Academy

AFCECO was fortunate to receive a grant from the Canadian Embassy in Kabul for Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) under the title of Young Afghan Women Leadership Development and Distance Education Program. This program provided our girls and boys at our orphanages the opportunity to attend a variety of courses during their two and a half month winter holidays.

These courses included 8 local courses such as mathematics, world history, poetry, literature, natural sciences, social sciences, English and computer and five distant classes related to donor relations.

    We have 40 amazing talented young female musicians in our orphanages. Please join in this chance to nurture something so positive in our children and consequently Afghanistan.


    Please consider purchasing one of these very expressive and unique works of art produced by our very own students from the orphanages. You can also make a donation to the Art Program.


    Sports have become a major element to our children’s program. For our Girl’s Football Team, we have a trainer from the Afghan national soccer team working with our students at the American University field.


    For 13 years children coming from poverty and violence have lived together in orphanages that are bastions of true democracy, places where everyone is equal.


    Our girls at orphanage express themselves by practicing dance, an art that is still prohibited by societal norms in Afghanistan. Our children practice Attan, Afghan traditional dance, as well as ballet, western classical dance.
