As stated in ARYA's mission statement, one of goals is to formulate and implement projects providing educational opportunities that could be applied towards rebuilding a new and peaceful Afghanistan.

The following projects are described in the hope that you will be moved to help support ARYA's goals through your tax-exempt donations.

Blankets for Afghanistan

Funds raised will be used to purchase materials for blankets to be made and given to the orphans of Afghanistan. The blankets will be sewn by hand by Afghan widows, giving them a valuable source of a life-sustaining income.
