I am Afghanistan

 

what we set out to do:

Rogue Foundation traveled to Afghanistan to Le Pelican School in Kabul, a bastion to Hazarra children.  The Hazarra are the  the most persecuted ethnic group in that region and simply attending school can be a threatening experience, especially for girls.

The paintings the children created for the show depict the lands and homes they were forced to leave behind. Other paintings conjure new homes they wish they could inhabit someday.

For Hazara children, an education, especially for women, is considered an impossible dream.  The proceeds from the I Am Afghanistan exhibition helped fund Le Pelican’s mission of helping Afghan children in need.
