Reviews for Global Partnership For Afghanistan
Afghanis who know the US from our military can't wait for us to leave. Those who know the US through GPFA welcome us. GPFA's goal is to turn the Afghan valleys back into the Orchard of the Central Asia (as it was known in the 1970s, before generations of war) by helping farmers plant orchards, vineyards, tree nurseries and vegetable gardens--people whose only profit source has been poppy cultivation. Last year alone, over a million trees were planted, including almost 6000 orchards.
