Help Us Provide Assistance to Afghan Children
and Families in Urgent Need

We have promised help to Zarlasht and other children like her.

Help us keep children as young as 3 years old from toiling as street peddlers, factory workers, and in other jobs just to keep their families from starving.

We are working now with our Afghan friends in Kabul to help these children and their families, and we need your help.

  • First, we will ensure that each family with whom we connect will receive sufficient food.
  • Second, our team will connect with the adults in each household to establish ways in which they might improve their circumstances enough to support their family through work.
  • Third, our team will make every effort to ensure that the children are educated.

ISHK takes a multi-
approach to the questions of who we are, where we came from, and what we might become.
