Afghan Action is an intensely practical organisation, combining a charitable vision with a commercial mindset to bring lasting benefit to hundreds of Afghan people
We pursue our vision - 'to help develop good jobs, sustainable businesses and fair markets' - with a commonsense blend of vocational education, confidence-building and sustainable job creation.
Since opening in 2005, we have educated, trained and employed over 800 young people. Our focus has been on training people to weave carpets and, since mid 2011, sew and make clothes and uniforms.
With a Training and Business Incubation Centre established in Kabul and a fast-growing network of partners in place, we are now well placed to catalyse the lives of an increasing number of Afghans - ideally to create an entrepreneurial ripple effect across the country.
