Marshall Plan Charities utilizes an holistic approach to lifting impoverished rural villages out of the cycle of poverty and despair through an outreach program that provides access to education, nutrition, clean water, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
AREAS OF FOCUS
Marshall Plan Charities is partnering with villages in Herat Province in western Afghanistan who desperately need the basic fundamentals for living a peaceful and prosperous life. Marshall Plan Charities' first village project was in Khairabad in the southern reaches of Herat Province just east of Highway One. The project consisted of a new school, clinic, vocational training center, water wells, and agriculture improvements. Today, over 500 boys and girls are attending school, the clinic treats over 100 patients a week, agriculture production has increased, and the local villagers have learned welding, weaving, sewing, and carpentry skills. As we expand north from Khairabad, we will deliver the same opportunities to new villages creating an overlapping network of stable and prosperous villages that will provide economic opportunity and access to education, healthcare, nutrition, and clean water. Over time, we will continue to expand the network to include neighboring provinces. Through your support, our outreach will provide the people of Afghanistan the hope to break the endemic cycle of poverty that encompasses their daily life and allow them to flourish in the peace and prosperity brought by opportunity.
