Giving Tuesday is tomorrow!

"When you learn, teach; when you get, give." - Maya Angelou

Treats and gadgets purchased on Black Friday and Cyber Monday are on their way to your mailbox right now. But after two days of frantic shopping the question is what will you do on the third day, on Tuesday?

As Maya Angelou says, "when you get, give." December 1 is Giving Tuesday and we hope that you will join millions of people around the world in giving back. 

This year please consider giving the gift of education to a child in need. 

A generous donor has agreed to match contributions made on or before Giving Tuesday, up to $5,000.  Double your impact and donate today!

When you look back, what will you remember more - changing a child's life or the latest trendy trinket that will be obsolete in a few months?


Giving Tuesday donors will receive a hard copy of our annual publication Journey of Hope.  Be sure to include your mailing address in the appropriate section of the online donation form or write "Giving Tuesday" on checks. 

Share our experience
Journey of Hope
You have probably heard the age-old adage, sharing is caring. This saying is very true for many of the communities we serve in PakistanAfghanistan, and Tajikistan where storytelling is an essential part of the culture. When stories are shared acquaintances become friends, friends become family, and families become stronger.

Join our family by reading compelling stories about the inspiring people we serve.
