ABout us.

 In 1998, a group of 6th graders in Northville, MI founded Kids 4 Afghan Kids, a Michigan-based non-profit organization.  The goal of Kids 4 Afghan Kids is to re-establish educational facilities for boys and girls in Afghanistan and to address the children's desperate health conditions.  Those and successive generations of students have raised money, under the guidance of their teacher,  to build three schools, a medical clinic, an orphanage and a community well for the residents of Wonkhai Valley, a remote area 3 hours southwest of Kabul.

Mission.

We are an organization that is driven by American students to make a better world for their fellow students in Afghanistan.

Our mission is to provide humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people, including returning refugees, to create an opportunity for cooperative efforts between the United States and Afghanistan, and to develop and enhance educational and cultural understanding and exchange opportunities.

GOals.

  • To re-establish equal educational facilities for boys and girls.
