Since the Soviet invasion in 1979, the people of Afghanistan have endured lives filled with deprivation, brutality and anguish. An entire generation has lost their childhood. There are over 700,000 orphans living in sub-poverty conditions. International Orphan Care provides education, healthcare, nutrition and vocational training so that these children will be healthy and productive members of their community. They have built two orphanages in Jalalabab and Herat and the educational system is hoping to have internet access service and power generators supplied to these two orphanages. The AWF is working on the cost basis of providing power generators and internet access service to these two orphanages.
