You have helped out Mariam, find out how
Your support has allowed us to make a very real difference in the life of Mariam. She is one in a family of 8 and originally hails from Herat Province. Her father died of cancer and her mother is very ill, needing monthly hospital visits. This has put a financial strain on an already struggling family. Now in Kabul, her mother teaches the Koran in her house to help support the family. Mariam worked on the streets for many years, trying
to sell things that would help supplement the income her mother earned. Through your support and Trust In Education’s program, she is able to attend school. At the young age of 13, she has experienced more than she should have, but now she has the opportunity to go to school, play volleyball, and listen to music. She would like to become a doctor when she grows up.

SOS welcomes Bryant High School!
Bryant High School is our first SOS registration that found us through Twitter! Ms. Khan’s Senior AP English class will be using The Kite Runner as their inspiration for a service learning project. As students start back to school for a new academic year, we hope you will consider utilizing our vast array of curriculum, videos, and other resources to enrich your students while helping those in need. Give them the tools to make powerful connections with a land and people often misunderstood. Let them channel their philanthropic energy into helping the women and children of Afghanistan.
