Thanks to the Marquardts

Our carpentry program for boys has been going for ten years now with 69 graduates who have gone from having almost no education to having skills in a much-needed trade in Kabul. All either have jobs or have started up their own business in Kabul, allowing them to support their families.

Rosemary Marquardt – a much-loved member of our committee and driver behind AADO’s success – passed away suddenly in 2017 and her family made a generous donation to the program in her memory and we have been able to purchase much needed equipment for these young men.
