PARSA was established and has grown through having an active small donor community and through many volunteers who have helped us through the years.  Here are ways you can help:

Afghan Scouts

Scouts all over the world connect with PARSA Afghan Scouts and include us in Eagle projects, send items to us for merit badges, and support us through sponsoring a scout troop or Scout Masters training.  For details about supporting our national initiative to grow a volunteer scout program in Afghanistan please contact Tamim Hamkar at
