Here are more fun activities in Long Branch, New Jersey.


A Weekend of Kites, Culture and Family Fun in Support of Afghan Girls’ Education

In Afghanistan, kites are a cultural icon: with their fragile glass strings and grand, ornate designs, they’re a reflection of the delicate dichotomy of life. To the people of Afghanistan, they represent an experience of blissful freedom. When you watch an Afghan child fly a kite, it’s as though they themselves are soaring.


On the weekend of September 25, Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation invites your family to join us for our one-of-a-kind event at the Pier Village Annual Kite Festival, where culture and recreation collide. Gifts and giveaways including stunning, original handcrafted Afghan kites (with glass-free strings!) and knitted kite pins, with all donations going directly to support girls’ education in Afghanistan.

Graduates have gone on to become teachers and midwives, and pursue degrees at the Universities of Kabul and Istanbul.
