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.

Afghanaid does not employ volunteers overseas as we have a policy of recruiting local Afghan staff. In general Afghanaid tends not to place expatriates in Afghanistan unless we are unable to find an Afghan to fill the post: over 95% of our staff are Afghan.
