Yelda, 12  Kabul, Afghanistan by Phil Borges

Yelda, 12  Kabul, Afghanistan

Prior to the fall of the Taliban, Yelda stayed at home and helped her family make carpets.  She would now like to become a teacher and specialize in English.  She has enrolled in the Out-of-School Girls Project, a program designed to help girls ages 9-14 catch up on their education and rejoin the mainstream education system.  Today only half of Afghan children age 7 to 13 attend school and of those only 34% are girls.
