BOOKS FOR AFGHAN CHILDREN
Millions of illustrated children’s books written by Idries Shah have been distributed across Afghanistan since 2006 by our friends and partners at Hoopoe Books. With Hoopoe’s support, ISF is now gearing up to distribute its own editions to Afghan children. Our aim is to put at least one copy of our books into every Afghan child’s hands. By doing so we hope to inspire a new generation.
