School Near Completion

*Sheldon Village, Afghanistan

Anticipation continues. The people of Sheldon Village, especially their children, want their school to be inaugurated. We asked the construction crew when they expect to finish the work and it’s still in discussion. We are working toward the completion in order to keep our word to our partners. It is our hope to open this school soon for these villagers. Once the school opens, the children of Sheldon will no longer have to walk two to four hours to another school outside their village.

Making Life More Sustainable

Solar Cookers, Afghanistan

Those who have solar cookers enjoy cooking food on it for themselves. It has made their life easier, especially since they no longer travel far to gather bushes to burn, just to cook food and boil water. We hope to sell the remainder of the solar cookers soon. We look forward to beginning new projects when this project is finished.
