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 on scaling up nutrition programmes to address malnutrition among children.
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 children to reach their full potential while reducing inequality, poverty and child labour. Our focus on the provision of professional training is especially directed towards women, in order 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.
Action for Development strives for the empowerment of communities and improved living conditions in Afghanistan. Our vision for Afghanistan is one of a society based on democracy and the rule of law, where every individual has access to basic human rights. We direct our efforts towards promoting the rights of the most vulnerable: women, children, persons with disabilities and isolated communities.
