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 development charity that operates solely in Afghanistan. We began our work in 1983 and despite the 30 years of war and turbulence we have never left. Read our History.
Afghanaid continues to work with rural men, women and children in some of the most remote and poorest areas of the country. We aim to understand communities and their needs, gain their trust, help develop their skills and improve their prospects.
We have helped more than one million Afghans through the construction of roads, bridges, wells and schools, improved health, education and agriculture production as well as the development of rural savings groups and small businesses.
From our Head Office in Kabul, we employ 400 staff, almost all Afghans. We also have a London office, focused on providing fundraising support for our Projects.
A peaceful Afghanistan that is politically and economically independent. A just society where there is no poverty.
We work alongside Afghan people living in poverty to enhance their opportunities and capabilities, so they can achieve sustainable economic and social development.
What we do
We enable poor and vulnerable people to claim their rights, in order to influence their own and future generations.
