Afghanaid assists rural communities in Afghanistan. Our approach requires the active involvement of the communities and works with community groups, which are active in the implementation of projects. Our projects include income generation (beekeeping), agriculture (improved wheat seed, vegetable gardens, tree planting), veterinary work, vocational training of women, food security,health education, sanitation and road and bridge building. Afghanaid is committed to working with Afghan communities regardless of the political and military situation. Because of our neutral stance we have been able to carry out our work under a number of governments, often in difficult circumstances. The vast majority of our staff well over 90% - are Afghan, many of whom are local to the projects on which they work. This has allowed us to continue to run our programme even when foreigners have been unable to enter Afghanistan. Our aim is to ensure that the Afghan people are never forgotten.
