HOPE. COMPASSION. CARE.
The hope for the future of Afghanistan lies in the education of its youth. For most of these children, war has been a constant in their lives and education has been absent, particularly for girls.
The Lamia Afghan Foundation is an all-volunteer not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping the children and disadvantaged people of Afghanistan by providing humanitarian aid, educational opportunities and vocational training that will help the next generation of Afghans have opportunities unattained by their parents.
We are deeply saddened that our dear friend and brother, Mr. Sher Wali Wardak, a member of the Afghan Parliament and the builder of our schools in Afghanistan, was brutally murdered by a Taliban-set IED outside his home in Kabul, on Sunday, 5 June 2016. Sher Wali was the dearest of partners and he and his brother Farook, the former Minister of Education, have done more to educate girls in Afghanistan than any other two people ever. We pray for his family and we pray that our efforts can continue to help educate Afghan children. Only education will lead to a strong and effective government and culture for the people of Afghanistan.
