Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO) is an Afghan non-profit organization based in Kabul, founded by a group of volunteers in 2001. They are working with international partners in the United States, Italy and Australia on projects that benefit Afghan children. The Child Sponsorship Program is one of the successful projects they started in 2004 through a partnership with CharityHelp International (CHI), a U.S.-based organization.

Please note: Many viewers have inquired about the possibility of adopting war orphans from Afghanistan. There is no adoption under Afghan law--but specific questions regarding adoption should be directed to the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan.
