COMPASSION FOR CHANGE. LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE. BELIEF IN SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION.
Read to Lead Afghanistan, a grassroots organization based in Kabul, Afghanistan works one on one with child workers in Kabul in ensuring school enrollment through sports, literacy, art and mentorship programs. R2L provides the children with sports uniforms, coaches, mentors, books, school supplies, winter clothes and other necessities. Our children are often the main breadwinners of their family, making approximately 100-200 AFG a day (1.50 to 2.50 dollars). Most are exposed to drug and substance abuse through their parents which create a vulnerable and unstable environment and force them to work. Read to Lead Afghanistan is committed to supporting children who are exploited as child workers in Kabul. We not only work with children but their families as well in ensuring access to healthcare, financial opportunities and sustainability.
We works towards creating better opportunities for working children and orphans by implementing accessible programs to ensure higher literacy rates, improved mental health and stable households. We support those struggling to support their families in hopes of creating a stronger generation.
