Message of Founder / Chairman (ALLOHA)
“a ray of hope and way forward”
About 3 decades ago, I was the wittiness of ruined villages and broken souls with totally hopeless look in the war hit country Afghanistan. I was assured that these broken souls & hopeless looks of Afghan resident will once again make it to see their lives happily, full of hope and prosperity.
Despite of all the obstacles and various geopolitical problems created by neighboring countries still Afghanistan is going forward. One may think that the progress and development is stuck in Afghanistan but there is a magical progress and development in the faith and will of Afghans. Saying this by the following findings:
After the fail invasion of Former USSRR:
› There were only few muddy public school for a huge population in each province of Afghanistan,
› Eager children unable to go school due to lack of economic and social conditions, particularly girls.
› Lack of proper health care,
› Lack of proper agricultural system, and transportation
› Lack of access to higher education, communication etc.
We have come a long way from those dismal times. Thanks to the international community who have lend their supporting hand to the people of Afghanistan. We have been able to:
· grown the Economy from zero to 1000, and this prosperity has immensely improved the quality of life for the people in the country.
· Improvements of Infrastructure such as health centers, schools, and so on
· Improvements in Education & Health system
· Women and children life improved
· Law and order much better than it was before.
The future looks strong and uplifting. With the continued support of international community and individual donors we are striving to:
· Build the capacity of the young local leaders in humanitarian assistance, DRR, and environment protection
· Building relationships, Earning the right to be heard, Planning and working alongside local leaders.
