COLLABORATION With Khaled Hosseini Foundation.

Khaled Hosseini (c) 2013 by Elena Seibert

    I have chosen to collaborate with The Khaled Hosseini Foundation because of their commitment to those in need in Afghanistan.  The Khaled Hosseini Foundation was founded by Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns and most recently And the Mountains Echoed, in 2007 after Khaled made an inspirational trip to Afghanistan with the UNHCR.  In 2009 the Foundation became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

The Khaled Hosseini Foundation focuses on providing humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan. The Foundation supports projects which provide shelter to refugee families and economic and education opportunities and healthcare for women and children. In addition, the Foundation awards scholarships to women pursuing higher education in Afghanistan.  One of its newest initiatives is the Student Outreach for Shelters (SOS) program.

The SOS program is a service learning based program that focuses on expanding the educational opportunities available to those studying Hosseini’s novels while also providing students an opportunity to connect with and aid the community and people they have learned about.

The program is available for The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns and the graphic novel for The Kite Runner and focuses on tailoring and expanding the existing study guides into standards-based lesson plans and activities for high school students or other participants, while also incorporating a services component to raise funds for shelters in Afghanistan.
