AfD’s work focuses on health, education, and empowerment. In line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, we are committed to fighting poverty, reducing child and maternal mortality, and ensure access to education to promote equal opportunities for all.

health

Good health is the building block of human development. We provide affordable health services and specialize in midwifery training, so mothers and their children are no longer left behind. In addition to offering affordable quality health care, AfD’s Comprehensive Health Centre has longer opening hours than regular health centres and regularly trains community health workers. AfD is also planning to scale up nutrition to address malnutrition among children.

education

Children are the future, and education is a fundamental element of empowerment. Through our schools for children with disabilities and street children, we strive for the children to reach their full potential while reducing inequality, poverty and child labour. Our focus on the provision of professional trainings is especially on women to address the lack of female health workers in the country and to safeguard their health and empower them to take their future into their own hands.

advocacy

Action for Development strives for empowerment of communities and improved human rights in Afghanistan. Our vision for Afghanistan is a society based on democracy and law, where every person is conscious of his or her rights and has the chance to assert them. We direct our efforts to promote the rights of the most vulnerable: Women, children, people living with handicaps and isolated communities.
