Shinkay Kids

The kids are always interested in what we are doing and become even more interested if they receive any type of treat. In fact at times things can seem to get out of control as the kids flock around and their requests turn to demands for pens and chocolate. As I have mentioned before, at times they can be downright rude and obnoxious – which can lead to some uncomfortable situations.  But, I am still drawn to the kids…

During the Afghan flood diversion project many kids from the surrounding area came to watch and to see what they could get. Some of the younger kids were a little shy at first, but they soon overcame that as they received the coveted treats.  Most of them were ok with the camera, although initially many ducked, turned or covered up when I raised it to take a picture.

Here are a few of the kids that represent the future of Shinkay.

Thanks for looking.

    Through your photos I can place myself back in your shoes; thanks for sharing. It’s hard to put into words what an hour at a village with the kids around feels like…and not come off as a world-class a$$ hat.

    Oh my goodness, I see pain in their eyes, along with playfulness and mischievousness. It’s fascinating that the girls are in bright colorful garb while the boys appear drab, almost blending with the earth. Thank you for sharing this part of the world with us.
