Hopefully you're aware of Skateistan- if not they are basically an Afghan based NGO who have now built 2 indoor park complexes, one in Kabul and now in Mazar-e-Sharif. Not the normal 'charity' concept, but an important one I believe, which is why I actively support these people. The parks provide a safe place for kids to go, they allow the kids of Afghanistan to be kids, to have some small degree of play in their lives. In return for time in the parks, the children take part in educational programs and the whole setup is quite simply improving lives in a very harsh environment. They've just put out a great looking book too, well worth investing in.
