We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Afghanistan Emergency Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
For 20 years, AAE used an accelerated education approach to assist, over 2500 women and girls, who didn't have access to formal education system due to age or marital status, to earn their high school diploma and to participate as an active member of the society. Now, under the Taliban rule, we're adapting to educate students safely by providing educational materials and supporting community-based classrooms.
Help us support the operations of two mobile schools that serve nearly 500 boys and girls of all ages by them teaching basic literacy skills. High priority needs for 2022 include computer literacy training, online learning, computer equipment, literacy programs, vocational training, teacher education, health workshops for women, and maintaining strong relationships with grassroots organizations in Afghanistan.
MADRE is increasing resources to our Afghan Women and Girls' Survival Fund to support the urgent protection and relocation needs of women human rights defenders, as many activists and human rights defenders are unable to leave conflict areas throughout Afghanistan. MADRE's Fund provides resources for urgent needs, legal aid, security assistance, emergency transport, and safe passage, as well as funding families willing to house activists at great personal risk.
More than five million children in Afghanistan are on the brink of starvation, with the nation enduring the worst drought since records began against a backdrop of political and economic turmoil. We provide lunch, food packages, and food supplements for some of the most underprivileged families while mobilizing the youth to create joyful activities and bring hope into their communities.
We have been working to improve the lives of orphaned, abandoned and underserved children in Afghanistan since 2010. We started with a locally managed food security program (greenhouse and chicken farm) that helped hundreds of orphaned children find loving foster homes simply because they came with food. In 2020, we launched a home-based poultry program for war widows and we opened a vocational school for orphaned girls. Despite great challenges, all programs are active today!
Millions of traumatized children & youth in Afghanistan need to be hopeful, joyful, inspired, and invest in a bright future. The war, poverty, coronavirus, and the recent turmoil are imposing increasing depression & hopelessness. MMCC since 2002 has been the major source of educational entertainment, fun, and hope. Most mainstream donors and international resources have abandoned Afghanistan. Join us to bring educational entertainment fun, laughter, and hope for the children.
4M refugees have already fled Ukraine to seek refuge in the neighbouring countries. Families are separated, since it's often women and children who can leave the country. Being forced to leave part of their family behind and having little information on what awaits them beyond the border puts them in a distressing situation. TSF provides them relief through free internet connectivity which helps them remain in contact with their relatives and look for essential information for their future.
Many poorer Afghan families continue to suffer from economic hardship and poor health due to natural disasters and political and social upheaval. Desperate families leave their homes and come to the cities to look for work and help. Many come to AIL centers, offices and clinics seeking help. We need funds to purchase food and provide clothing, shelter supplies, school supplies, medicines and hygiene items.
Poor Afghans in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable in times of disaster, whether natural or economic. Those without jobs, food or homes face starvation in harsh winter weather or after other natural disasters or following displacement. In recent years, there have been landslides, earthquakes and flooding incidents where we have been able to provide help.
This project will help victims of terrorist attacks and vulnerable populations at risk of famine due to collapse of the Afghan government. Following recent school terror attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, we will provide assistance to the families of victims and scholarships to the traumatized students. We will provide support to the internally displaced, particularly women leaders, journalists, and refugees in neighboring countries with cash assistance for food, shelter and basic necessities.
Given the situation of women and girls under the reign of the Taliban and the traumatic experiences during the journey to Turkey, this project strives for providing a comprehensive protection mechanism for the Afghan women and girls in order to meet their basic needs and support their well-being. Within this context, the project has three major components: provision of female hygiene kit and basic emergency kit; legal counselling and assistance; psychosocial support.
This microproject will give a scholarship to one needy Afghan girl/young woman. It will contribute to the cost of tuition, books, school uniforms (not for university), stationary supplies and transport so that the girl can attend a private high school or university. Without this scholarship, the girl would be unable to attend a school or university and receive a high quality education.
Since the Afghan Taliban took control in August 2021, the situation in Afghanistan remains tense and the future of the country uncertain. Forty years of war and insecurity, chronic poverty, and this year a very severe drought and the COVID-19 pandemic had already had a devastating impact on the people of Afghanistan. Now, the conditions have worsened. We are raising funds to deliver vital emergency relief to families whose lives have been affected by the unfolding humanitarian disaster.
The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is unfolding rapidly, with hundreds of thousands of people displaced in their own country. This humanitarian emergency is exacerbating an existing food crisis. According to the World Food Program, 14 million people in Afghanistan are facing severe food shortages, including 2 million children who are at risk of malnutrition. ActionAid will expand our long-standing programming and provide food, water, hygiene kits, and counseling support.
In Afghanistan, journalists have played a critical role in providing local communities with accurate and accessible information. The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan is leaving journalists, particularly women journalists, at grave risk. Internews is providing emergency funds to meet the immediate needs of Afghan journalists and to support them over the long term to continue providing trustworthy information to their communities.

Nearly 40 years of conflict have left Afghanistan with a deadly legacy of landmines and explosives. Tens of thousands of people have been killed or injured by landmines. Given the current situation, HALO's work is more important than ever. HALO's work plays a crucial role in stabilizing communities in Afghanistan, not only by clearing explosives, but also by providing jobs and valuable skills and training to over 2,500 staff which in turn provides security for their families and dependents.
At this dark time, Central Asia Institute remains committed to doing all we can to continue our education programs.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
