I’m 57 years old. I was born in Sang Pol village, Katib Daimardad district, Maidan Wardak province. I spent my childhood as a shepherd and farmer. My father had seven sons, and I was my father's fifth son. The bad economic situation prevented me and my brothers from going to school and studying. I was twenty when my father died, then I moved to Pakistan and worked for a year in a hotel in Quetta. Later, I went to Iran with several friends and worked in a stone-cutting factory in Iran for almost six years. Later on, I returned to my homeland and got married. At the time, Lepco clinic was working in our district treating leprosy patients. I was hired as a chef at clinic and worked for 21 years with the Lepco Institute in various areas. And my only problem was that my family was in Kabul, and I was working in the central provinces, and after few months I was able to visit my family. Therefore, Mr. Ahmadi, who was in charge of Lepco's office in Kabul, introduced me to the OFARIN Institute. After hiring at OFARIN I could meet my family every day. I have 4 sons and three daughters, my eldest daughter is married and my eldest son has immigrated to Switzerland.
All I wanted was to be able to encourage my daughters and sons to study and get knowledge. Thank God that my children were able to go to school and college. And I owe that to the OFARIN Institute because I was with my family and I was able to be a strong supporter of my children to succeed in their studies.
