Girls Scouts in Afghanistan

Every week on Saturday a group of colorfuly dressed young girls gather outside the base - Major Leventhal and Magda Ahmed from from the Nagarhar Provincial Reconstruction Team host a weekly girl scout program - quite popular as shown by the numbers of girls attending and growing all the time. One hundred and fifteen attended last week. The girls work on craft projects, sewing, etc. Many of these young girls show up with several of their younger siblings in tow - these young girls have a hard, difficult life and very little to look forward to as they mature.
