In 2011, as the result of youth advocacy around the world, the United Nations declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child. Its mission is “to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.” It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.

About Us. In 1998, a group of 6th graders in Northville, MI founded Kids 4 Afghan Kids, a non-profit aimed at establishing educational facilities for boys and girls in Afghanistan and addressing the desperate health conditions of the children and their families. Successive generations of students, with guidance from their teacher, have raised money for the construction of a six-room school, a medical clinic, an orphanage, a bakery / kitchen, a guest house and community well for the residents of Wardack, a rural village 3 hours southwest of Kabul.
