Humaria sells eggs as a street vendor to help her family survive. As with many families in Afghanistan, years of war have left them very poor. Only half of all Afghan children ages 7 to 13 attend school and typically boys are chosen over girls. When the Taliban came to power, education for girls came to an end. In 2003 CARE began the Out-of-School Girls Project, a program designed to help girls ages 9 to 14 catch up on the education they lost and rejoin the mainstream education system.
