Our Projects

AfD is excited to share the latest news about the progress of its two ongoing projects, for which we are currently seeking funds. In line with our commitment, we are seeking to reduce maternal and infant mortality in Afghanistan by providing further training for midwives. AfD also aims to bring street children back to the classroom so they may have better chances in the future. We strive to empower Afghan communities by bringing these projects to life.
AfD plans to further conduct capacity trainings of 100 midwives in 2017 in Panjsheer and Takhar provinces, who will be able to provide their services in health facilities in rural areas, where needs are most urgent. Details here
Fund this project
AfD plans to give 80 street children basic literacy and numeracy skills by end of 2017. In addition to meals and health services, children are given assistance to integrate into the formal education system. Details here.
