Imagine Asia

What We Do: Storybooks

ImagineAsia has translated Aesop's fables into Dari for use in schools in Afghanistan. Illustrated by our volunteers, Kate Harrold, Adrianne Zimmerman, Jason Melcher, and Lois Andersen, these stories will reach children who have never had a book of their own.

For thousands of years the fables have revealed universal truths through simple allegories.

The stories often use animals to teach lessons that are easily understood by people of all ages.
