BAMYAN, Afghanistan, September 2014 – We travelled to the Ahangaran Valley in the Bamyan province of central Afghanistan to work with local children as they produced videos about their school, their lives and their dreams for the future.

Now, only the caves remain.

But it is not only the Buddha statues that are missing. The region of villages and valleys near the provincial capital also lacks hospitals and schools.

One of the areas without services is the Ahangaran Valley. We entered the valley in a UNICEF jeep and drove along a dusty, rocky path to a small village in the mountains.
