We strive to provide care and educational opportunities to the orphans in Afghanistan. Neglected the most by the world community, they number over one million and are considered to be the most vulnurable and deserving segment of the Afghan society. Our mission, therefore is to help these children become educated, self-sufficient and productive members of the society who will be able to contribute to the rebuilding of Afghanistan's social and economical infrastructure leading to a prosperous and stable Afghanistan.
We accomplish this mission more effectively by establishing orphanages/schools, and also helping the mothers of these children. The widows otherwise would be forced to use their children as sources of income, sending them out to beg on the streets or do hard labor away from school in order for them to survive. It is also our mission to reach out to the most needy, helping as many poor and desperate people as possible. Our Food Distribution Program was created for this purpose.
Overwhelmed by the plight of the Afghan people who endured one of the longest wars in history, Reza Afshar had committed himself to take part in the reconstruction of Afghanistan.
He recognized that the orphans, who numbered over one million, were the most deserving segment of the Afghan population affected by the war and in desperate need of immediate help. Therefore, in April, 2002, he established Kabul Orphan Care in the poverty strickened westside of Kabul. After seeing the successful establishment of the orphanage, he went on to tackle the second most deservant and vulnerable segment of the population, which were the widows with children.
