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.
No matter how big or small, all Afghanaid fundraisers are extremely valued and help us to reach our goals. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
Helping a cause you care about can sometimes seem like a daunting task. However, it's easy to forget that as part of our social and professional lives we come into contact with many different groups, made up of individuals like us who want to make a difference. Individually it is sometimes hard to muster the resources and skills. However as part of a group you can achieve much more.
Afghanaid has resource packs to help you organise events in your home and community. Or why not arrange for us to make a presentation at your church, school, mosque or other community group?
If you are interested in getting involved with fundraising as a group then please don't hesitate to contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 20 7065 0825.
There are lots of things you can do to fundraise for Afghanaid in your own home. Why not host an Apples for Afghanistan party, a musical fundraiser or a Green Tea Party? We can provide you with starter packs and guidance for hosting these events.
Education Packs for Schools
As part of the UK's national curriculum children learn about the developing world and what it means to be a globally aware citizen. Afghanaid has created educational packs.These packs look at the situation in Afghanistan and use Afghanaid's work as an example of a humanitarian and development agency working in a challenging environment. You can download our packs by clicking "Education Packs in Schools" to the right of this page.
Nominate or recommend Afghanaid to your congregation? We would be very happy to provide you with leaflets and videos which describe our work. We would also be happy to join you to host a presentation.
During Eid and Ramadan we will be asking for special ‘zakat' donations from Muslim congregations and community centres.
Afghan and Asian Business
We are working with small/medium Afghan owned businesses in the UK to encourage them to host our collecting tins and talk to their customers about our work.
Are you a business owner who could host a collection tin? Do you use any local shops that are owned or run by members of the Asian and Afghan Community - could you let us know where, be our ambassador?
Clubs such as The Rotary Club or The Soroptimists
Put Afghanistan and Afghanaid on your next meeting agenda. Take the floor and tell your fellow members about our work. We would glady send you leaflets and a video to support your presentation.
