ChildFund International in Afghanistan

With its history of civil and international war, Afghanistan struggles to maintain its democracy and continue its reconstruction efforts. The country is a mosaic of cultures, tribes and ethnicities.

Three decades of conflict and an array of natural disasters has made life in Afghanistan challenging. Water shortage and infertile land hamper agricultural success. Nearly a third of Afghans do not have sufficient food. Demand for education in Afghanistan is high, while educational performance remains poor. This is especially true for nomadic groups and women in Afghanistan.

ChildFund has served Afghan children since 2001.
