The Kids of Finest (2)

I am Ali Abdi, from New Haven, CT, and a PhD student of Anthropology at Yale University. I am currently in Afghanistan, doing research related to my dissertation.

When I entered Kabul in 2016, I got to know a number of talented and hardworking Afghan kids who were working on streets while struggling to pay their tuition fees and life expenses. They were coming from underprivileged families and living in unpleasant conditions. They did not have much access to educational materials. A group of young Afghan students and I decided to be part of their lives. Last year, with the help of generous people like you, we raised about $4000 , and our talented friends managed to attend private schools, work less on the streets, and bring more joy and happiness to this world. They are the future of Afghanistan.

The itemized details of last year spendings are available here:

The kids' working place is a street in front of a shopping center in Kabul called Finest-- and that's where the title of the page comes from. Similar to last year, the raised funds will be mainly used to help the kids continue their education. We will also use the funds to cover a share of the their life expenses similar to the previous year.

Any raised fund above the set goal will be saved for next years and/or used to help kids in similar situations. Donors will be updated accordingly.

Thank you for your support and contributions.
