THE STORY:

One thing that I have come to understand through my experiences advocating on behalf of my own daughter with special needs is that any child suffering from disabilities can achieve amazing things - as long as they receive the right help. In a society like Afghanistan, disabled children are typically shut out and shut away from the mainstream population as there are little or no services available to them. It is a heartbreaking and dismal existence for these children as they are often times treated worse than animals.

I have decided to make it my mission to help children with special needs in Afghanistan as that country begins the long journey of rebuilding itself. My organization will build a state-of-the-art school that will look to serve the needs of these very special children. This will be a one-of-a-kind project not only because this school will be state-of-the-art, but also as my school will address the needs of children with a wide-range of disabilities in grades K through 12, certainly a first for Afghanistan and a real contribution to the US hearts and minds campaign in winning over the local population and turning the tide of the war so that our troops can come home.
