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.
We work with rural communities to promote their economic, social and political rights, essentially helping poor Afghans to help themselves.
Poor Afghan women and men are often rendered powerless and have been consistently denied their fundamental rights. This means they are regularly excluded from important decision-making processes.
We recognise that if women are not put at the centre of our work, their poverty and inequality will most certainly continue or even worsen. Therefore, gender equality with responsive governance and accountability are central elements of our work.
