The Bayat Foundation has supported a number of charitable efforts in Afghanistan, including several that focus on providing for the welfare of children. In 2013, its initiatives in support of youth covered everything from food to sports. Food is behind many childhood needs, and the Bayat Foundation worked hard to provide meals in 2013. After the organization Food for Kidz made a generous donation, the foundation distributed more than 600,000 nutritious rice-soy meals to children throughout Afghanistan, including those at the Michelle Bayat Orphanage. Children also need a safe place to play, keep active, and grow, and the Bayat Foundation sponsored several projects in 2013 related to Afghan youth sports. Among them, it supported events like tae kwon do tournaments to encourage the development of discipline and athleticism in Afghan youth. The foundation also supported sports at the local level, repaired the sports equipment at Khushal Khan High School, and modernized the school’s water filtration systems to help children stay healthy and active.
