Sarosha Hansraj was inspired to create "Children Care for Children" by a bedtime story her parents would tell her. The story was about an underprivileged farmer who had lost all his crops due to a heavy rain. Not having enough money to buy seeds for the next season, the farmer was forced to borrow money for the seeds and food for his children. Unable to pay back the money in time, the farmer ended up losing his land to the moneylender. The only way there would be enough money to buy the family food would be if the children began to work in other farms. Therefore, the children stopped going to school and their already torn shoes wore off as they worked on the farm. The children missed school very much, but they were left with no other options. Sarosha was determined to save children in the developing world from the same fate.
At 8 years old, she founded her organization to provide kids in marginalized areas of Afghanistan with an opportunity to receive education. Children Care for Children has supplied 800 dictionaries to children and 500 sets of school materials to the girls at Darnami School. The dictionaries help children learn English, opening doors for their futures, and the basic education they receive helps unite people of all cultures and backgrounds.
To date, the organization has directly impacted 900 children in Afghanistan, and indirectly impacted many more by simply teaching them to give and help others. In addition, Sarosha has founded her own "Girls Up Club," an initiative of the United Nations Foundation, at her school.
