VIDEO: Afghanaid

We began our work in 1983 and despite 30 years of war and turbulence we have never left.

AfghanAid has been working in Afghanistan for more than 30 years in some of the country's most remote and marginalized regions to promote economic, social, and political rights. The organization specifically works with vulnerable households headed by women, or households with elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family members. Underscoring their programs is a foundational belief in viewing communities as partners with essential resources and values to contribute, not merely recipients of temporary relief. 

As part of their 30th anniversary celebration, AfghanAid, with the help of Oscar-nominated fimmaker Leslie Knott, shares three stories about their deep and long-standing commitment to underserved and remote communities in Afghanistan.
