Afghan Kids Answer Your Questions



Tariq (right) spends his summers at home with his family in Afghanistan, but has been going to school in Peshawar, Pakistan, for the last six years. He lives with relatives there.

What do you think Americans are like?

Answer: "Americans are lucky. They have so many things we don't have: schools, cable TV, computers…and lots of money. My cousin lives in New Jersey and sometimes I talk to him on the telephone. He always tells us about what a good life he has there and how rich everyone is. I hope to go to America for school someday."
