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.
How can you help?
There are many ways of supporting our work both financially and in kind.

Take part in a challenge event
Ever thought of running a marathon, trekking along the Great Wall of China or cycling from London to Paris? You can do all of these things and many more besides whilst fundraising for Afghanaid. Take a look at the events we have on offer this year on our challenge events page.
Fundraise in your community
Hold a fundraising event in your own home - we currently have host packs available to help you put on a fun Apples for Afghanistan Party, a Green Tea Party or a Musical Fundraiser.
If you're a member of a church, mosque, school or other group we can also help you think of ways in which to fundraise for Afghanaid. Take a look at our community fundraising pages.
Volunteer your time
We often need volunteers to help with events and bucket collections within London. To hear up to date news about volunteer opportunities please join the mailing list. For information on where and when we need volunteers in the coming few months please visit our volunteer page.
Make a purchase from our shop
Donate money AND get something wonderful in return! We have beautiful dresses, glamorous jewellery, fun hats, stylish belts and artistic cards as well as a range of CDs and books. Take a look at www.afghanaid.org.uk/shop.
If you can't find what you're looking for in our own shop perhaps it's available on ebay or amazon. There are ways in which you can raise money for Afghanaid whist using these and several other sites. We have a list of easy and fun ways in which you can fundraise online here.
Possibly one of the simplest ways to raise money for Afghanaid! Just contact us at the office +44 (0) 20 7065 0825 and ask us to send you a recycling bag. Then post any old mobile phones, inkjet printer cartridges or laser and tonor cartridges to our partners at Recycle 4 Charity and we will receive a donation. The full list of recyclable products can be found on the Recycle 4 Charity website.
In partnership with Recycling for Good Causes, you also can donate your old necklaces, bracelets, chains and earrings - in return a donation is made to Afghanaid. You can also include old or unwanted currency.
If you would like to receive a Recycling for Good Causes envelope, please contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 20 7065 0825. We look forward to turning your old jewlery into valuable donations. More information about this program can be found on the Recycling for Good Causes website.
