The Amin Institute
Thanks to your donations, Omeid International provides Afghan orphans with the fundamental necessities for development.
Many of our children had no permanent place to live before coming to our facility. For those who did, it was usually less than ideal. Some of the kids had never even seen a solid floor, only used to dirt. Having a warm, clean, and stable home is crucial for a child’s development.
Nothing empowers a brighter future like a quality education. Most of our children were illiterate when they came to us, some of them having never even held a pencil. With the dedicated work of our teaching staff, these kids have made up for lost time and are now learning at a level equivalent to kids their age in the U.S. Our curriculum includes reading, writing, math, history, and cultural studies.
Many of our kids have spent their lives foraging for food through piles of garbage. For some that meant we had to teach them how to use utensils; for all it meant eating habits were not ideal. We provide our kids and teach them about the balanced diet they need.
Having never had as much as a checkup, most of our kids had some kind of physical ailment. Living in a war-torn environment has given almost all of them some form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other similar conditions. We provide our kids preventative care (checkups, testing, etc.) and treatment for a variety of acute conditions.
