Rumi in the Community:
As committed members of the Afghan community, our pledge to the people goes beyond our professional goal of effective communication. Rumi operates numerous volunteer initiatives, the list of which is constantly growing.
Sarak e Awal (Street One) is a program where we work with children who are forced to provide for their families by working on the street. We arrange for them to be put in private school, attend classes at Rumi, and make friends in the network. Along with private sponsors, we ensure they have the supplies and clothing they need as well. The children’s success speaks for itself.
Making use of our production skills, we have launched successful campaigns to bring to light positive stories, images and characters in Afghanistan. While remaining realistic about our country’s situation, we feature leaders in the community through our #guardiansofhope campaign. We meet everyday people who are smiling for various reasons in our #afghanssmile campaign. And we have made numerous videos about the country and its beauty that we want all Afghans and the rest of the world to see and be proud of. All of these can be found via Facebook and Twitter.
