Welcome to International Orphan Care


IOC uses measures of success to assess the effectiveness of its programs and staff within the prevailing constraints and limitations of the local society. Success can be measured by the graduation rate of the students and their ability join the work force or extend their education beyond high school.

135 Completion Certificates were awarded in 2015. Girls received 46 Completion Certificates: 9 for computer, 17 for English, 9 for math and 11 for tailoring. The girls in the tailoring class also received a sewing machine and sewing tools.

In Afghanistan, it is very challenging to track the students after graduation because the graduates tend to go wherever there is opportunity, which is quite often away from Jalalabad. Anecdotally, some IOC graduates do keep in touch via email, social media, etc., and all are gainfully employed or pursuing further education.
