This isn’t the first time the Taliban has ruled Afghanistan. The group held control from 1996 until 2001 when western powers invaded.
During this time, many Afghans fled the country to India. John Pudaite says Bibles For The World has started to work with these refugees over the past few years. “It’s a little-known fact that there are probably 15-20,000 Afghan refugees that ended up in New Delhi, India. And some people put the number a lot higher than that. But that’s based on how many have actually registered with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.”
Children in these families don’t have access to good education, so Bibles For The World is helping run a school for them. Pudaite says, “This partner has been reaching out to these young people, getting them in school, trying to get them up to a level of education across the board. Because they have some huge gaps in their education. The formal education system in Afghanistan has just been in shambles for many years.”
