Sustainable Development

Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries in the world. Since the Soviet invasion in 1979, it has been the scene of a series of conflicts that have continued for more than three decades. Poverty in Afghanistan is widespread throughout rural and urban areas. However, women and children were the prime victims of civil war in the country. During the Taliban regime, women lost their husbands; in most families only the children remained without guardian. Children who lost their parents and the widows who lost their husbands are working to run their family in this very critical condition of Afghanistan’s economy. Most of the time they do not have a loaf of bread to feed their children and they are suffering from hunger.

Since 1989, SO tries to communicate with community members, establish an understanding from the issue to honestly introduce the most vulnerable families in their communities as the beneficiary of the projects.  SO always go to the communities in very remote areas of Afghanistan.

SO has provided economic support to 528 families since its establishment and has provided economic support to 115 families (568 female and 447 male which the total of project’s beneficiaries is 1015 individual) in 2015.

Overall 643 families were benefited by sustainable development projects until the end of 2015. See detailed projects of 2015 in below:
