Unprecedented hard times due to international sanctions are forcing the Afghans to cross over into Pakistan, a country that is undergoing the worst economic crises – galloping inflation, food shortage, and deteriorating law & order. With no assistance the Afghan refugees are forced to live in the slums of Peshawar where a single room is shared by multiple families.
Despite these hardships, the quest for education is fully alive among the Afghan children. Yesterday a group of 15 young girls visited Brighter Tomorrow to pursue their education, education that is denied to them back home.
Despite severe fund shortages and shortage of space, Brighter Tomorrow welcomed them and is in the process of arranging teachers and an Afghan curriculum to ensure they can continue their education when they return to Afghanistan in the future.
