> Helping the US Military with Distribution in Afghanistan

>One advantage of working with local NGO's doing economic development is we often get to visit schools and other development work. Partly because they love to show us their other work and it is a big part of our research as we get a good Idea of how different groups here work, and what combinations of work are the most successful. Today we had a great time as a team meeting up with Sozo International and the US Military. Our team handed our school supplies to teachers and gifts of coloring books, toys and school supplies to 465 street children who are peddlers on the street and could not go to school without this opportunity and special school set up for them. It was awesome to hand out the gifts sent by Americans from all over and even our Canadian team members enjoyed their time there. We really felt blessed to be a blessing. Of course we were gaurded tehe whole time and no one could come on the street while we were inside. The military timed the entire event and were keeping clock. The entire distribution took less than 45 minutes, so they could leave before enemies knew they were there. We were definitely reminded we were in a post war situation. We then invited the soldiers home for lunch to celebrate Womans Day.
