Employment Opportunities in Parvan Province, Afghanistan

Parvan1

A surprising number of Afghan immigrants whom I encountered in the Central Valley in California (mostly around Stockton and Modesto) were born in Parvan Province, and for a while I had the impression that Parvan must be a very big province indeed, but it isn’t, and almost half the people in Parvan Province depend on money that their relatives who were lucky enough to get a job in the USA send home. Some of those men have been working as agricultural laborers in the almond groves of the Central Valley for 40 years, and sending almost every penny they earned back to their families in Parvan Province, where it’s very, very hard to earn a living.
