NEI’s Seeds of Hope Youth Program Continues to Expand
NEI is entering Year 2 of its popular Seeds of Hope Youth Club program that provides Afghan youth with life-enhancing skills to help them better navigate the daily challenges faced in their rural villages.
So far, NEI has trained 2,000 Afghan youth – primarily in Nangarhar and Herat provinces – on farming, nutrition, community leadership, and business in both classroom and experiential settings.
These ambitious learners have been quickly setting up their very own poultry farms, soy farms, and small garden plots, growing food to help feed their families and also sell to the local market.
