I and the person who looks after an orphan will be in Paradise like this,” putting his index and middle fingers together. (Hadith)

Hayat Orphanage in Afghanistan

Hayat Orphanage in Afghanistan was established in March 2013 in the center of Laghman Province. Since then it is a place of hope for more than 100 orphan children. Hayat Orphanage is committed with the mission to provide the orphans with quality education services, lodging, food, clothes, medication, schoolbooks, shoes, involving them in sports and much more. In addition, particularly the main focus of Hayat Orphanage is to protect the vulnerable orphan children from abuse and provide a mainstream education that enable them to support their families when they grow up.

However, to accomplish the quality education services, the orphans are admitted to the local private schools. After school hours they receive tuition in Math, English and Computer skills. Moreover, they have a fun-filled schedule incorporating playing cricket and football, reading time and academic trips.

As per the report, nearly 1.6M orphan children are in Afghanistan and this occupies 3.9% of the total population. As a result, due to the high demand, we have expanded our services and providing the equal support to almost 2000 orphan children across the country.
