Mission Statement

About The Children of War Our mission is one of education and empowerment. We focus on providing orphaned children primary education, a nutritious diet, and valuable job skills through the three schools we operate in the city of Kabul and district of Paghman within Afghanistan. The Children of War schools follow the curriculum as directed by the Afghan Ministry of Education. Our students study Math, English, Dari and Pashto (official national languages), Science, National and World History, and Geography. Carpentry, sewing, and computer skills are also taught at the respective schools where we have resources. In addition, all students take drawing and calligraphy as part of their arts studies. Building Minds, Supporting Lives: Each school year, TCOW provides all students with two sets of uniforms and shoes. In addition, we provide all the necessary school supplies and books. Each student's family receives a monthly stipend to cover their basic living expenses- enough to keep the children in school, concentrating on their studies. The schools run year-round, with short breaks in the winter and summer seasons, in addition to observances of national holidays. Each day, the students eat a healthy lunch provided to them by the school.
