We need your help to get uniforms for 12 new Scout Troops and 384 Afghan Scout youth in 6 southern provinces!
Our Scouts are mostly orphans and do not have families to support them. Donations to our Afghan Scouts, whether through direct donations, our Collectable Badge initiative, or through purchases in our Online Store go directly to supporting and expanding our Scout troops.
It takes $2500 to start a new troop, $1000/year to maintain a troop, $500 to train a Scout Master, and $50 to enlist one new Scout in a troop. Please support our fundraising efforts (below) or make a Direct Donation Here.
Thank you to all our supporters!
Collectable Afghan Scout Badges
Collecting and trading unique badges from around the world is a Scouting tradition. PARSA’s Afghan Scouts are now launching our second annual collector’s badge. We are giving away our official “Afghanistan Scout Association 2017” badge as a gift to donors who make a contribution of $25 or more, provided you cover the $5 cost of shipping for U.S. supporters (for supporters outside the U.S. we will contact you with shipping cost).
If you are a donor interested in receiving one or more of our Collectable Afghan Scout badges, please fill out and submit the short contact form below, then proceed by clicking the “Donate” button which will take you to PayPal. If you would like to donate via another means please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Click below to make your donation! You will receive one 2017 Collectable Scout Badge for every $25 + $5 shipping that you donate to the Scouts:
Also, you can still back-order our 2015 and 2016 Collectable Badges, until our supplies run out! Specify that you are interested in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 collector’s badges in the above contact form!
Donations to the Afghan Scouts
Your donations to the Afghan Scouts will help finance current and future programs, changing the lives of Afghan children and educating the next generation.
PARSA’s Afghan Scouts program is overseen by the Afghanistan Scout Volunteers Society and the administration for the core program and existing troops are funded by government grants, but we rely completely on grassroots donations in order to expand the Scouts further, start new troops and fund their uniforms, and run activity and community service days.
As a donor to the Scout program, we invite you to let us know what aspect of the Afghan Scouts you are most interested in supporting. The cost of purchasing a new Scout uniform for a potential future Scout is only $45. The cost to start an entire troop of 32 youth is $2500. To help a troop turn one of their regular weekly meetings into an exciting activity-day field trip, including transportation, food and supplies, requires a contribution of $400.
