We are able to send money to Afghanistan by person-to-person transfer, and by using the hawala system. This enables us to fund particular programmes with our Afghan partners, and ensure that the students we sponsor receive living expenses.
We support programmes ranging from children’s life-changing surgery to mobile libraries, from school and university scholarships to maternal health services, from a children’s circus to clean water and sanitation. We put emphasis on providing education and incomes for women because we believe that these are most likely to create a lasting change for the country.
We aim to fund projects that demonstrate cultural sensitivity and provide employment for Afghan people wherever possible.
We spotlight some of the projects below.
Funding a maternal health clinic
We’re funding a project in Herat supporting mothers and children suffering from extreme economic hardship and malnutrition.
Life-changing surgery for children
Your donations help pay for operations for children from all over Afghanistan.
Sponsoring medical students
We’ve sponsored many women through medical school in Afghanistan.
New shoes for children
We are supporting a small Afghan charity to provide shoes to children in Parwan province.
Heating for Afghan families
Many families in Afghanistan are struggling to keep warm in the harsh winter, so we are helping to provide heating stoves, fuel and blankets.
Providing respite from hunger
With Afghanistan on the verge of humanitarian and economic disaster, we are working to provide emergency food and hygiene parcels to families in particular need in Kabul.
Bringing joy with the children’s circus
We’re delighted to support this mission to bring joy and learning to Afghan children.
Supporting young women through university
One of the most important and long-lasting ways we supported women in Afghanistan was by funding their education.
