Focus Areas

Action for Development provides vital health and education services in Afghanistan to the most marginalized and vulnerable individuals through cost-effective, cascade-model projects that allow for community participation and empowerment.

AfD runs projects in midwifery capacity-building, education for street children as well as children with disabilities, while continuing to provide health services through its Comprehensive Health Center and training for health professionals. In addition to development projects, AfD also provides emergency aid in response to natural disasters.

AfD aims at addressing root causes of underdevelopment and places individuals at the heart of the reconstruction effort. With many years of experience, our team on the ground has a profound understanding of local and cultural perspectives, which have earned them great trust and respect among the communities they serve.

“Being a midwife means that you need continuous training to keep up with news related to health and treatment guidelines. Therefore, I decided to take the midwifery training project run by AfD. The program was very informative and I learned of many new issues that enhanced and refined my knowledge.I’m really proud of my profession as a midwife, which I love, and I’ll continue advocating my message by providing services to women in need”

“I am a 6th grade student at the Rahyab school for disabled children. Among all subjects, I like algebra the most. We are seven in our family. My sister, two of my brothers and I are deaf. My father is a poor man. He works hard but cannot earn enough money for transportation fees and our house expenses. My parents do not know how to communicate by sign language, and therefore I am very happy to have classmates with whom I can communicate.”

“I have been working for the National School for the Deaf since its establishment. This helped me learn more about people with hearing disabilities. Since I am also a member of the Afghan sign language development group, I could say I spent my life working for people with hearing disabilities, supporting them in different aspects of their life. This is my vision. I hope one day to see persons living with hearing disabilities in Afghanistan gain high quality education and a better life.”
