Christian Aid (CAID) has worked in Afghanistan for more than three decades under four different regimes – from the Soviet occupation to the current government that was voted in after the US-led invasion of 2001.
Their work with partners on community development, livelihood creation, gender equality and emergency response has brought us experience and expertise in running projects in this highly fragile environment, a deeply divided society ravaged by insecurity, violence and war.
Christian Aid always strives to deliver projects which have a real impact, especially for the most vulnerable and marginalised communities and groups.
Work towards a society without war and conflict, where women, men, boys and girls can access their human rights and live with dignity.
Strengthen national and local civil society organisations.
Support communities to embed culturally suitable and locally acceptable methods of gender empowerment.
Support partners and communities when humanitarian emergencies strike.
Support national organisations to engage in dialogue with the government on justice, human rights, gender equity, and governance.
Encourage women and men to speak out about their communities’ needs and take collective action to reduce poverty, marginalisation and vulnerability.
