So Proud - Roya Ehsas is the
unstoppable volunteer program assistant for ... a little
help and a talented writer. We couldn't be prouder she is
getting a bit of the recognition she deserves in the
Kid's DVD's - there are almost a
hundred small children at the women's prison now and they
are pretty bored with the couple of DVD's they have. We'd
love to get some DVD's for kids infant to about 6 years old.
Baby Einstein, Baby Mozart, those would be fantastic,
cartoons, anything suitable for very small children who
don't speak English.

You can make a donation in just a few minutes
from our contributions page. Your donation will make a huge difference, a
little goes a very long way. Our money goes directly to women
working with women in Kabul so there's no overhead - your help really helps! No
one receives a salary from donations to ... a little help, your
money gets put to work where it belongs. With women and girls.
So many people are always asking how they can
donate items like clothing, school supplies, and other things we
could make such good use of here. I always had to tell them that
there was no easy or cost-effective way to get the stuff here.
That has now changed. Kathleen Rafiq has received a contract
with the US military to receive donations through the military
shipping system and distribute them to rural villages where they
are most needed. Here's how you can help.
Thank you for visiting this site, be sure to check out the photos,
resources for additional
information, and the great media coverage
our work has received. If you're bored, there are
blogs from previous years. And please drop
me a note - I'd love to hear from you!
