Afghanistan is experiencing one of the most violent springs in the past 16 years


Dear Friends of CAI,
Afghanistan is experiencing one of the most violent springs in the past 16 years. Insurgents and government forces have clashed throughout the country resulting in record numbers of civilian casualties. Last week devastating bomb blasts killed more than 150 people and injured hundreds more in the center of the capital city of Kabul.
CAI condemns these horrible attacks, and our commitment to education in Afghanistan has only deepened. Creating peace through education takes time, and we want to reassure our donors and supporters that we are in it for the long haul.
As always, the safety of our overseas staff and students is our main concern. And now, this has risen to a new level. We will continue to work closely with these partners to determine the best practices to reach students in these areas without putting them in jeopardy.
We thank all our donors and supporters for standing by the people of Afghanistan and believing in this mission of peace through education. Together we will provide the next generation of leaders with the tools to change the course of history toward peace.
Sincerely,
Jim Thaden, Executive Director
John E. (Jed) Williamson, Board Chair
