Our Progress 2013
We sent 60,000 Hoopoe books to schools in Asad Abad, the capital of Kunar Province. Thanks to your support 20,000 children – 9,000 of them girls – received books. Many of these young girls risk their lives to go to school each day. Now they each have three wonderful stories to read at home to their family, friends and neighbors.
Our team in Kabul successfully delivered 85,930 Hoopoe books to 22 of the poorest schools in Kabul province – just in time for children to take their books home before schools closed for the long, harsh winter.
We hope to provide books for the remaining 30 schools once they reopen in the Spring.
