Humaria, 11  Kabul, Afghanistan by Phil Borges

Humaria, 11  Kabul, Afghanistan

Humaria sells eggs as a street vendor to help her family survive.  As with many families in Afghanistan, years of war have left them very poor.  Only half of all Afghan children ages 7 to 13 attend school and typically boys are chosen over girls.  When the Taliban came to power, education for girls came to an end.  In 2003 the Out-of-School Girls Project began a program designed to help girls ages 9 to 14 catch up on the education they lost and rejoin the mainstream education system.
