Matching Donor Campaign

We did it! Thanks to your generous support, we raised $27,360 during our Matching Donor Campaign that exceeded our campaign’s goal of $25,000, which was matched by our Matching Donor that made the total amount $55,000 .

We want to extend our sincere gratitude for all of you who contributed and worked on this fundraising campaign.

This matching donor campaign was part of our collective efforts to tackle AFCECO’s financial difficulties in 2018, and all donations raised in this campaign will be spent on operating costs of our orphanages.

There are many ways to help needy children, but one of the most rewarding is by sponsoring a child of the AFCECO orphanages. They are from every ethnic group in Afghanistan. They have survived in the worst conditions of war that begin before they were even born and has lasted for over 40 years. The lucky ones get to be housed, fed and kept safe at AFCECO. They get to be educated in an environment of respect, equality and diversity, and to grow up with people dedicated to giving them the best future possible. Sponsoring a child through AFCECO is a potent act. It is an act of caring, of joy, of interaction, of empowerment.

AFCECO Children

With a heavy heart we regret to inform you that Wahid “Kochi”, our woodworking teacher passed away after battling with a brain stroke for several years. A veteran artist whose work adorns the Parliament building among other notable public areas, had been working diligently with our boys and girls on techniques of carving raw material into art. He had set up a workshop at our New Learning Center in 2011 with a wide variety of tools to enhance the depth of training for the children. This was not carpentry class, but rather a workshop in the ancient and fine art of wood muraling, depictions of everyday and legendary Afghan images in hardwood, transforming raw material into art much as sculptors do with marble and other hard mediums.

Our children will remember this great artist as one of their best teachers.
