Esmatullah Ragheb, the organisation’s head, told reporters here that they had delivered cash assistance to deserving children in 23 provinces of the country to encourage them to get education.

“The cash aid, a very small package, may not be meet their needs. But it is still helpful in encouraging orphaned students to get education and prevent them from getting involved in hard labour,” he said.
