Evidently, economy plays an important role in such cases. What other reasons might cause this dilemma? And what, if any, solutions do you see to end this?

"The Afghan war is a war of perceptions for the most part. It is a multi-dimensional, complex, and regional conflict that requires a comprehensive, multi-pronged, and long-term commitment.

Water tank poisoned at Afghan girls’ school; 140 hospitalized

How many of us still remembers this incident? Do you remember when 140 girls were water poisoned approximately a month ago in Afghanistan? Simply because its no longer at focus of media, it doesn't mean that these girls now have access to improved or better facilities. These girls still need our help and support in order to continue their education under such circumstances.

If we, the Afghan Youth Panel, present a fundraiser for the cause, how many of you are wiling to support us? Share your thoughts and ideas with us!
