Ministry Description
Morning Star Development is an organization focused on economic and community development, primarily in the country of Afghanistan. Morning Star operates several Community Centers throughout rural Afghanistan. These centrally-located facilities provide medical and birth care, literacy, education, communications, agricultural, and other services to approximately 40 surrounding rural villages which generally have little or no access to such services. Afghan government officials have endorsed this concept and have challenged Morning Star to build 1,000 Community Centers throughout rural Afghanistan. Morning Star operates three Institutes for Leadership Development which teaches leadership principles based on the best practices of global leadership development. Morning Star serves as a platform for other organizations to be able to work in Afghanistan. Examples: short term medical teams, food distribution, emergency relief work, leadership, business and English training and more.
