Street Kids School, Kabul

Street Kids School, Kabul

The Street Kids School, one of the programs run out of the Borderfree Nonviolence Community Centre in Kabul, Afghanistan, teaches nonviolence, Dari, and math to very poor Afghan children. Many of the children work in Kabul’s streets, washing cars, selling small items, and collecting scrap metal. The teachers at the school are student volunteers from Afghan high schools and universities.
