A word from the President

I have recently been to Afghanistan to visit all our NQA projects. It was truly heartwarming to see how our projects are progressing. There is a really positive spirit in our partnerships with local communities in one of the most remote regions of central Afghanistan. 

It is simply amazing to think that we have been engaged in those remote regions for 10 years. Even more remarkable is that members of the communities have a more positive outlook on life; they have hopes and ambitions for themselves and they realize that their lives have a value. Their hopes give us hope for the future of NQA.

Our school construction in the village of Sokhtagi is going according to plan. Our early childhood development program is becoming a feature in the villages as people recognize its importance.

I am very proud that NQA is privileged to lead these important projects for these poor and deprived communities, giving them hope and opportunities for a different future. This would not have been possible without your support and belief in our work. 

I would like to thank you very much for your trust and encouragement.

Taiba Rahim,

President of the Nai Qala Association
