To expand educational opportunities so that all individuals receive the best possible education, regardless of their abilities or disabilities. We understand the important role that education plays in society - it allows students of all abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, and ethnicities to come together to learn not only about academics and the world around them, but also about each other. To this end, PATHS is building a school for children with disabilities in Afghanistan so that they may contribute to the future stability of their country.

Please check out my latest effort to raise awareness about the plight of disabled children in Afghanistan:
PATHS is building a state-of-the-art school for children with a wide-range of disabilities in grades K through12 in Afghanistan.
Disabled children in Afghanistan have suffered for years with cognitive and physical impairments due to land mines, the spread of polio, poverty, malnutrition, pre-natal drug abuse and decades of war, while more than 75% of these children receive no formal education whatsoever.
We want all children to have an opportunity to obtain an education - regardless of ability.
We are a non-profit organization of parents working in partnership with teachers to improve the educational opportunities for all children.
This project will be a first for Afghanistan and a real contribution to the hearts and minds campaign in winning over the local population and changing the tide of the war so that our troops can begin to come home.
The path to success for all students lies in creating greater opportunties.
