On Thursday 15 September, an enjoyable and challenging night was spent, trying to figure out the answers to some curly trivia questions to outscore the other tables. The event raised about $1400 for the Carpentry Program in Kabul – this will cover the teachers’ salaries and the trainees’ stipends for one month, which is terrific.

A happy night of Afghan food and music
Held at the Afghan Gallery on 28th July, this enjoyable evening was attended by many young people who hadn’t eaten Afghan food before and who were delighted with the cuisine. Most people sat upstairs on cushions in Afghan style, Dr Nouria Salehi spoke of her work and AADO and the money raised from the evening will help our village life skills project.
Dust of Uruzgan concert
“A night to be remembered”
The Fred Smith “Dust of Uruzgan” concert was a great success. Fred is an amazing and convincing story teller as well as a great musician who writes powerful and meaningful songs about many things including Afghanistan.

“A very memorable occasion”
We celebrated the Afghan New year 1395 on March 20th by holding a fundraiser luncheon and auction at a beautiful historic home with many old and new friends of AADO.
Not only were we delighted with the venue, the weather, and the turnout, we were also blown away by the generosity and support of old and new friends of AADO.
Through tickets, the auction, donations and other sales on the day, we managed to raise over $10,000 to go towards funding our projects in Afghanistan.
