Afghanaid is an international charity that operates only in Afghanistan. We work alongside Afghans in the most remote and marginalised areas of Afghanistan, to help them meet their survival and development needs.
Afghanaid is an international humanitarian and development non-governmental organisation (NGO), created in 1983 specifically for the Afghans.
Afghanaid is a British humanitarian and development organisation that operates solely in Afghanistan. We began our work in 1983 and despite 30 years of war and turbulence, we have never left. Read our History.
Working alongside men, women and children in some of the most underserved regions of Afghanistan, we help enable Afghans to identify their most pressing needs and the most relevant solutions.
We work alongside Afghans providing the skills training and tools they need to help themselves, their families and their communities.
What We Do
We particularly target vulnerable households – including those headed by women, or with elderly, chronically ill or disabled family members. Together, we find solutions to their problems. Our work gives ordinary Afghans a voice in their own development, making them active participants in shaping the future of their country.
We keep Afghans at the heart of our work, which is long-lasting and irreversible as the skills taught are then passed on to whole families and communities.
With more than 30 years of experience and a deep understanding of local, cultural and ethnic issues, Afghanaid has earned great trust and respect among the communities we serve. This has allowed us to gain access to some of the most remote areas of the country.
A peaceful and thriving Afghanistan.
From our Head Office in Kabul, we employ 140 staff - almost all Afghans and 32% of whom are female. We also have a small London office, which provides support for our Projects.
