Educating to orphans and socio-economically disadvantaged children has been IOC’s most effective strategy in enabling children to make a better life for themselves and their family.

The IOC School is fighting statistics by giving opportunities for disadvantaged Afghan boys and girls, who are able to study safely in a classroom with modern computers, books, and desks. Through vocational training, the children learn to be independent and confident, which will encourage them to be contributive members of society. They also learn entrepreneurship as some enter the workforce right away as proficient tradesmen and tradeswomen. Math, English, and computer skills are invaluable classes that will help the students find white collar jobs, like a schoolteacher. Through employment, these disadvantaged children will be breaking status quo and increasing influence and social power in Afghanistan.
