There aren’t too many avenues for entertainment for children in Afghanistan. Most kids do not pursue entertainment actives at home or at school. There are some places but these are mostly accessible to the financially richer population, and more often than not, the poorer kids are left out.

Instead, these kids play in the dusty streets with sticks and stones and pass their time among destroyed homes and broken walls.

While schools have become a second home for children, they are still not equipped with adequate infrastructure for extracurricular actives.

It is important for kids to be involved in extracurricular activities at least is once a week, to ensure sound physical and emotional development.
