Forty years on, we're more determined than ever

Since 1983, through political turmoil, enduring conflict, and deepening poverty, Afghanaid has stayed and worked with millions of families in Afghanistan so that they can change their lives and their communities for good. We remain committed to our vision of a peaceful and thriving Afghanistan - an Afghanistan where we no longer have to exist.
