I want to help

Afghanistan has been plagued by armed conflict for over thirty years, leaving the country in a state of chronic instability and vulnerability. Despite ongoing aid, over 9 million Afghans still live below the poverty line. Continuous conflict and natural disasters have left hundreds of thousands of Afghans displaced, destroying livelihoods and increasing economic, social, political and environmental vulnerability.

People in Need (PIN) has been working in Afghanistan since 2001. The mission focuses on more than just humanitarian aid, seeking to find long-term solutions to the systemic problems in the sectors of education, livelihoods and rural development. In keeping with the organizational approach, PIN focuses heavily on contact in the field, and on areas that are more remote, and as a result receive less assistance. Working closely with local investors to develop and implement projects, PIN has achieved a higher level of sustainability and acceptance.

PIN Afghanistan currently organizes its projects in the North, East and West of the country from two main offices in Mazar-e-Sharif and Kabul. Other eight regional offices are spread across Balkh, Samangan, Herat, Nangarhar and Paktya provinces.
