For centuries, the country has been used as a strategic stronghold, as internal and external political forces struggle for power. Today, civilians are still caught in the crossfire. With a proud, strong, and loving culture, Afghan people show kindness and generosity despite their desperate living conditions, and constant uncertainty. 

We’re working to ensure communities have access to healthcare through mobile clinics travelling between camps and supporting remedial education for children struggling to attend school.

We are working with the people of Western Afghanistan in building a community where children can thrive. Already we have achieved great things.

students have attended hand-washing and hygiene awareness sessions.
female community leaders completed training in leadership, management and advocacy.
children have been supported with tutoring and stationery.


World Vision is extremely concerned for children in Afghanistan. Young and adolescent girls and boys experience conflict and instability, displacement and multidimensional poverty distinctly and disproportionately. The recent conflict has impacted children greatly, compounding the child protection risks associated with the ongoing drought, internal displacement, COVID-19, and food and water insecurity.

World Vision is working alongside our partners to ensure children are protected and spared the consequences of conflict and instability.
