Afghan Connection

We fund education in Afghanistan to improve the lives of the community

Charity Registration No. 1092134

Story

Update: February 2018

Thanks to an amazing effort we have reached the initial £10k target, then increased it to £12.5k and again to £15k. So we are now going to reset the target to £17.5k so we can continue to fund educational projects in Afghanistan with Afghan Connection for a further year.

The Latest Project - £2,250

  1. We joined The Big Give Funding initiative in December 2017. Its purpose was to raise funds to build a school for the children at Bakhmal Basi School, Rustaq District, Takhar Province. A special one-off Charity Adventure Film, Wine and Pie night raised a fantastic £2,250.

The Original Project - £10k Target

  1. A cricket pitch construction plus equipment and kit distribution for 22 players
  2. School construction for 352 girls at Siaab School in Takhar Province
  3. AC’s Community Based Education project in Takhar.  

This is the culmination of the original project and absolutely brilliant to see this great work come to fruition. You can see the results in the recent pictures. :) 

Beyond the Original Project - £2,150 Target per annum

Ongoing funding is being directed towards AC's Community Based Education project in Takhar. 
  1. £2150 will play for 60 kids to go to school for a year. £35 per child per year. 

To reward your support the fundraising efforts every donation of £10 and above will get a downloadable copy of the film and a electronic copy of the film poster.

Update: October 2016

THE PREMIERE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!

THANKS TO THOSE FOR COME TO THE LONDON CHARITY FILM PREMIERE

“100% of profits from this film are going to the charity Afghan Connection to support education and cricket in Afghanistan”

The story of the film originated from my first trip to Afghanistan in 2009. As a member of the first cricket team to tour Afghanistan and play the Afghanistan national side in Kabul. First hand I witnessed the positive nature of the Afghan people and the power of sport to bring change to a challenging part of the world. I knew immediately that after this trip I would return one day.

Afghan Connection played a pivotal role behind the scenes to enable the 2009 trip to occur. It was this connection along with the wonderful work they do in Afghanistan, both in education and cricket, that has inspired the charitable arm of The Great Game film project.

I fell in love with Afghanistan on my first visit. The second visit only strengthened those feelings. Once you get to know the real Afghanistan you will too.
