We carry a variety of emergency relief, early recovery and developmental interventions in Afghanistan. We tailor these to the needs and priorities of each targeted community, delivering interventions in an integrated way ensuring best outcomes for our beneficiaries. We currently work in the following sectors:
What our beneficiaries say
“Before DACAAR built the pipe scheme we had to walk for 1.5 hours to fetch water and now we have 33 taps near our houses across the settlement.”
“The vocational training taught me how to read and write. Now when I take an order at work, I know how to write the customers’ names and that makes me very happy.”
“Knowing the skill of carpet weaving is very useful because I can do it at home. Our neighbors keep asking me when DACAAR is going to start new classes.”
“I was so happy to start the class. I had no problems participating after DACAAR cleared all concerns of the village elders.”
“I received this training from DACAAR for 7 months and really liked it. Now I have my own shop and earn up to seven thousand AFS per month.”
“About 1000 families live here now in Jalilabad. We have enough water to use for drinking, irrigation and all other needs. DACAAR’s help was amazing.”
“I am saving the money that I make and want to rent a shop and become self-sufficient. I want to rely on myself, I don’t want to borrow money from others again.”
Message from our Director
Afghanistan is going through challenging times. Ordinary Afghans continue to take the brunt of an un-ending conflict that not only has a high human and material toll but also denies many people the opportunity to develop and prosper.
Within this context and as an NGO that has stood side-by-side with the Afghan people for more than three decades, we continue to strive in reaching out to Afghans where the need is greatest and where we can make the most significant difference.
We work hard to place our beneficiaries’ needs, priorities and concerns at the centre of our work.
