Hi, I'm Zeinab!
I am 9 years old student in 4th grade from city of Rasht. My parent divorced due to my dad's addiction problem and abnormal behavior. My mother married again but since my step father doesn't like me, we had to move back to live with my disable grandfather.

My mother needs help to support my educational costs. Everyone say I am a talented student but my mother is very concern about my future.

Coal for Cold!

Winter is approaching fast in Afghanistan, and concern of many families we support is their "heat". 
They usually use coal for their coal stove and heaters. This year they are also concerned about security of the area and how difficult it could be to look for coal.

According to our office in Mazar-e-sharif, the cost of coal for each family is about $120 If you like to help a family in need to stay warm this winter, please donate $120 for each family here.
