Thought patterns developed through familiarity with these tales promote a flexibility of mind that cannot coexist with extremist beliefs.
These twelve titles are currently available in Kabul in Dari-Pashto bilingual and in English only editions. Information on each title is available by clicking on the book images above. We also provide Teacher Guides and Teacher Training, audio versions of the stories in all 3 languages, read with page-turn signals for classroom use, and posters to brighten up classroom walls.
There are also downloadable radio programs on six of the stories for local Afghan radio.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN KEEP THIS PROGRAM GOING
For a tax-deductible donation of $100, 60 children will receive a book to keep, and their teacher a literacy guide for the classroom.
