OFFS for children in Tajikistan


A prospect of a peaceful life for Tajiki children

Bringing love and attention to the Afghan children

With the withdrawal of the ISAF forces, big efforts are put into reconciliation of the Afghan people. In this process, sports can play a very important role providing national cohesion, building cross cutting communities and bringing love and attention to the children. 

Sports in general and football in particular enjoy lots of positive attention and support all over Afghanistan these days. When the Afghan national football team beat Pakistan in 2013, it called for great attention and celebration.
