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 always on the lookout for volunteers. We run a number of events and collections throughout the year and welcome individuals who are able to give their time.
As well as helping to transform the lives of some of the poorest people in Afghanistan, becoming a partner could be good for business too!

Partner Profile: The Afghan Rug Shop
The Afghan Rug Shop's owner, James Wilthew (pictured), served for six months in Northern Afghanistan in 2004. While there, he bought several rugs to sell on and help pay for his wedding. 11 years on and after moving to West Yorkshire, he thought a rug shop might do well in Hebden Bridge.
James sources the shop’s rugs from markets, weavers and families across the Northern Provinces. The shop has a Label STEP licence, ensuring all of their products are ethically produced. But he wanted to do more.
"Partnering with Afghanaid means we are able to support the wider communities that our craftsmen and women come from. Given Afghanaid’s dedication to these communities – having worked with them for over 30 years - it took very little time to decide we had found the right charity to support. I’m really proud that The Afghan Rug Shop is supporting Afghanaid; it’s simply the right thing to do."
