A bit about TIE – Trust In Education
BRINGING EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE, AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO VILLAGES IN AFGHANISTAN.
Education when combined with health care and economic development programs provide immediate relief and are the solutions to ending cyclical poverty. All programs are implemented in partnership with the community, thereby empowering Afghan communities with control over their lives.
Trust in Education (TIE) is a grass roots, non-profit organization founded in May 2003 to provide health care, education and economic development programs in Afghanistan. An equal amount of time is devoted to educating Americans about our involvement in Afghanistan, past, present and future. TIE connects American communities and Afghan villages. Through these exchanges everyone discovers that we share more in common than not and experience the joy of making a substantial and long lasting difference in the lives of thousands.
TIE first provided funding to build a secular school for boys and girls in Lalander, Afghanistan that opened in March, 2005. “Their school” is within a 15-minute walk from home, instead of the three hours it once took to reach schools in Kabul. In March 2006, adult education courses were added thereby enabling both young and old to learn. TIE also funds classes in homes, in response to threats and actions taken by the Taliban. If we provide a safe forum they will come.
In home classes are offered during the winter when the schools are closed. Their appetite for education is insatiable.
Education is the key that unlocks all doors.
Join us in delivering education to Afghans who have had no access for too long.
