After five months, we still await the day when the government will announce the end of the lockdown.  We are not allowed to open the centres until then. The students frequently ask us when we will reopen and our answer is always that we have to wait for the government to announce it.

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

 

Again, this spring has showered the Garden with lots of rain. All the flowers are blooming beautifully! The past winter was the coldest yet in Kabul. Our “leap day” exhibition was enjoyed by so many, yet we have not been able to hold exhibitions since then, due to the security situation.

Farmers to Fight Malnutrition

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

We had a cold winter in Yakawlang this year, and even though it is springtime, the trees haven't budded, yet.  Presently, we have distributed more than 16,000 poplar cuttings! As we give the cuttings to the local farmers, we also teach them how to plant hybrid poplars. So far, 20 farmers have been trained this year.
