Out of the growing pool of young leaders raised in AFCECO orphanages, Qudrat Wasefi is an impressive example of this investment that now comes to fruition. Qudrat was raised in the orphanage and has been studying music at Afghanistan National Institute of Music since 2011. Besides being a trumpet player and a resident teacher at ANIM, he writes and composes songs for children as well.

Qudrat came from an extremely poor background and was brought to one of AFCECO orphanages in Kabul in 2008 when he was a 9-years old kid. 

Kid of War 

Release: 2020

Kid of War is the title of an album contains children songs written and composed by Qudrat. He described it in his Facebook post:

“As a child born in war and grew up in an orphanage, I perhaps better understand the painful life of Afghan kids, who are undoubtedly the prime victims of the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan. Kid of War will depict a glimpse of this tragedy and each song in it narrates a true story of the thousands that most Afghan kids have experienced in this era.”
