Geez, there are a few angry types on this thread.

Some of these kids have basically had no childhood. That is important in re-building a society. Playing and doing something other than war etc. Being kids again. That might well be a very important part of the healing process.

Maybe there is a some more culturally specific form of play such as kite flying or bashkasi (I think I got the name right - the horseback game rugby game with a goat carcas) but maybe you who are bandying around words like "imperialism" and so about are making assumptions about a culture if you reckon that they can't, won't, shouldn't or wouldn't consider having a go at something western.

Maybe your very dogmatism is a projection your own paternalistic view of their culture which you are dictating for them, apparently for evermore. Imperialism of another kind.

If the money is not getting stolen or otherwise wasted or paid to consultants (like a hell of a lot of other money there), good job. Even better if they get something out of it.
