Charity information


Afghanaid is a British humanitarian and development charity operating in Afghanistan. We work with communities in some of the most remote and marginalised regions of Afghanistan, supporting Afghans to meet their survival and development needs.

Founded 1983

  • Mission statement

    Afghanaid works with rural men, women and children in some of the most underserved and marginalised regions of Afghanistan to identify their most pressing needs. We provide the skills training and tools they need to help themselves, their families and their communities.

    We support Afghans in the following ways: providing basic services, improving livelihoods, responding to emergencies, and mitigating the risk of disasters. Gender rights and good governance underpin a substantial portion of our programming and often form the basis of stand alone projects.

    We target the most vulnerable households, including those headed by women, or with elderly, chronically ill or disabled family members. Together, we find solutions to their problems. Our work gives ordinary Afghans a voice in their own development, making them active participants in shaping the future of their country.

    • To empower vulnerable and marginalised Afghans, especially women
