May was a very busy month for our children with guests and friends visiting our orphanages as well as other exciting programs.

We are extremely honored to have been recipients of this year’s Memory Project for the second time, the first time being in 2013. The Memory Project is a US nonprofit organization that invites art teachers and their students to create portraits for youngsters around the world who have faced substantial challenges. They aim to make portraits to help the children feel valued and important, to know that many people care about their well-being, and to act as meaningful pieces of personal history in the future. This project provides the art students an opportunity to creatively practice kindness and global awareness. For doing this they receive photos of children and teens from global charities operating residential homes, schools, and care centers in a number of different countries every year.


The Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO) is an Afghan non-profit organization based in Kabul and registered since 2008 with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan’s official registration agency. Founding Chairperson, Andeisha Farid, opened her first orphanage, or "foster haven" in 2004 in Pakistan. An Afghan native who had grown up in war and displacement, her dream was to come up with an innovative way to help vulnerable Afghan children, in this case, orphaned refugees.
