“100% of profits from this film are going to the charity Afghan Connection to support education and cricket in Afghanistan”

   

Afghan Connection

Afghan Connection funds and supports schools, teachers and sports opportunities, especially in rural areas. With our partners we have built 43 schools across Afghanistan, which currently educate over 50,000 children.

The people of Afghanistan have lived with war for thirty years. Almost half the population are children under 14. Since 2001, the number of school children has risen from 1 million to over 9 million, 40% of whom are girls, but millions of children are still denied an education.

The children who learn today are the teachers, doctors, nurses, agriculturalists and leaders of tomorrow. The country has a chance to develop a strong economy, a stable society and its own promising future.

Dr Sarah Fane MBChB – CEO & Founder of Afghan Connection

‘Jon, I am so impressed by your enthusiasm and energy and by your spirit and the joy you obviously brought to so many on your journey. You are an inspiration.  I also love the way you are challenging perspectives of areas of the world on which people have made huge assumptions and yet know very little.’

– Sarah Fane

a The Great Game – Charity

   

A brief inspirational film detailing the progress made in Afghanistan by the UK Registered Charity Afghan Connection, narrated by Patron Michael Morpurgo OBE.

   

Why are the proceeds going to Afghan Connection?

  

The story of the film originated from my first trip to Afghanistan in 2009. As a member of the first cricket team to tour Afghanistan and play the Afghanistan national side in Kabul. First hand I witnessed the positive nature of the Afghan people and the power of sport to bring change to a challenging part of the world. I knew immediately that after this trip I would return one day.

Afghan Connection played a important role behind the scenes which enabled the 2009 trip to occur. It was this connection along with the wonderful work they do in Afghanistan, both in education and cricket, which has inspired the charitable arm of The Great Game film project. Plus I just love their projects. 

I fell in love with Afghanistan on my first visit. The second visit only strengthened those feelings. Once you get to know the real Afghanistan you will too. 

– Jon Beardmore
