• About ECI

    Enabled Children Initiative is an independent non-profit registered in the US as a 501 c3, as a charity in the UK, and as a charity in Afghanistan. ECI supports orphaned and abandoned children with disabilities, and those at risk of being abandoned, in Afghanistan. We work to improve the children’s quality of life and help them reach their full potential. Our staff are all volunteers, which means 100% of funds raised go directly to the benefit of the children we support, their caretakers, and educators.

    Activities

    ECI provides comprehensive residential services to support orphans with disabilities in one private care home in Kabul, Window of Hope, and works with the UK charity Children in Crisis to provide support to orphans with disabilities residing in the two state orphanages in Kabul--Allahuddin, and Tahia Maskan. ECI is in the process of building a Community Center in Kabul that will include comprehensive rehabilitative and support services, a school and daycare, a vocational training program for adults, as well as a limited residential space for abandoned children with disabilities and an independent living home to accommodate those children as they transition to adulthood.

    Unique Services

    ECI provides a unique service in Afghanistan not currently offered by the Afghan government or other NGOs. We provide a safety net to some the most vulnerable children in need of protection and nurturing.
