Introduction to ALLOHA
ALLOHA is registered with the department of NGOs in Ministry of Economy –Afghanistan and its national secretariat is based in Kabul.
The Asian Local Leaders Organization for Humanitarian Aid (ALLOHA); is an independent national Humanitarian and non-profit young organization which dedicated to work for the preservation of human and nature’s lives and dignity.
Even though young ALLOHA is an organization which is focused and committed in its activities and shares with others its experiences, findings and aspirations in the field of Humanitarian Aid and capacitating Local Leaders in Asia.
True to the name ALLOHA / NGO has a Humanitarian vision which is genuine and path breaking. The broad spectrum of activities and their success rate within a short span of time speak about the dedicated work done by ‘ALLOHA’.
We endeavor in a humble way to reach underprivileged and needy children, aged men and women in the conflict and give them an encouraging new rights of life. Through development, relief and advocacy, we strive to create lasting change in the lives of children and aged people. The working experience over the past 30 years of the founders of ALLOHA has shown that, if we limit our programs and investment to just directly impact the child, the change will not be sustainable. For sustaining and the well-being of children, we need to equip the families and communities socio-economically; hence, our approach to child well-being is community-based and involves multiple programs.
Our Humanitarian investment in children, aged men and women and their families and communities are often in areas such as:
Strengthening the Volunteer Young Local Leaders in Humanitarian assistance
Disaster Risk Reduction awareness and technics
The focus of ‘ALLOHA’ is not just limited to strengthening the young local leaders, but We provide support to aged people, as there is an urgent need to provide older people with the means to lead a full life where they are provided with medical care and nursing. They need to have access to information, entertainment and the right to make their own choices. Older people need to be able to lead a full life with dignity. ‘ALLOHA’ is committed in working for the welfare and empowerment of youth as well as the older persons.
‘ALLOHA’ aims to empower youth, nurture innate talents and develop their skills to enable them to fulfil their potential and prosper in their communities and in the world at large. At the ground level, ‘ALLOHA’ has taken initiatives to provide opportunities for capacity building to youths; to keep pace with technical and professional demands of emerging times. Yet more still needs to be done and we are on the path to empower the youths in our society. ALLOHA have always believe that through entrepreneurship, innovation and grassroots efforts, our young generation can transform this country, the next generation has the power to change this world for the better.
ALLOHA’s vision is to see resilient and dignified Asian lives and to coordinate globally with likeminded groups and societies.
The mission of ALLOHA is to make an effective contribution to empower communities against all types of disasters, and to promote local capacities mainly through media & Education and preserve human dignity.
