Afghans4Tomorrow Education, Health, Agriculture and Job Training Programs

Our projects' goals are to help the impoverished people of Afghanistan become self-sufficient by providing long term sustainable projects and expertise. We believe that education is the key for the success of Afghanistan and are committed to promoting education for girls who suffered during the last three decades of wars and conflicts. A4T supports the education of approximately 350 mostly female students in 3 programs from 1st grade to college, in Kabul and 3 villages in Wardak Province.

A4T has made a difference in addressing the health needs of the most vulnerable Afghans –women, children and the elderly– through its Abdullah Omar Health Post, which serves patients from 12-15 villages in the Chak District of Wardak Province. The post opened in June 2007, with a doctor, a doctor’s assistant and 3 other staff. The doctor and the pharmacist are available 24/7 to deliver services to patients, offering medicine, check-ups, immunizations and basic health information. The post has served over 75,000 patients since it opened.
To better serve the women and babies in the villages nearby a qualified Midwife was hired in 2011. She has provided health services for 2,500 women since that time.
In 2012 a separate Midwife Center was opened inside our walled compound, next to the Health Post, with two delivery rooms, a waiting room, a bathroom, medical equipment, medicines and its own private entrance for women. The midwife deliveries their babies and also provides pre-natal checkups, post-natal and baby checkups, medical and nutritional advice as well as family planning and child care information.. Since its opening 59 babies have been delivered by A4T's midwife.
The Afghan villagers pay 30% of their medication and treatment fees. However these fees covers only a fraction of the salaries, equipment and medicines cost. Donations are urgently needed to buy medicines, supplies and pay for the staff's salaries.

We are providing jobs and job training at all levels for Afghans in our projects in order to help the local economy and to develop trust and long term relationship with the our organization. Beside literacy courses, our goal is also to provide trainings such as vocational training in order to make Afghans self-sufficient. Two examples of A4T's job training are: 1) Fuel Briquette Project in Nangarhar Province, funded by UNDP-Small Grant Program, has trained 120 families to make ‪‎briquettes‬, for their own cooking/heating needs, and to sell to others to generate income.
2) Integrated Agriculture Development Program in Kunduz Province, funded by CORIDID: has trained 607 student farmers in 21 schools new techniques for improving the health and nutrition of their livestock production.

'Women & Water' project started in 2013-funded by George Washington University-5 Asian countries are involved–Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Tajikistan, Kirgizstan and USA is a donor country. The goal is to understand the challenges for woman and water in each country.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our concentration is in improving the capacity of those we serve in our education, agriculture and health programs to become self sufficient and contribute to the economy of their families and country. Once projects have proven to be sustainable, we endeavor to transfer them to Afghan control--either the Afghan government or local private organizations.

Strategy can vary considerably depending upon the intended scale and whether a project is intended to recur annually (such as school). A4T's small size and flexibility allow for this adaptation from project to project. Generally, however, our local staff identify needs and opportunities for assistance. A4T then partners with both large charitable foundations and individual donors to obtain funds. The Board supplies general guidance and liaises with major donors, while the staff in Kabul handles the day-to-day project management. Staff provides periodic reports to the Board and to donors.

A4T has long-term partnerships with several charitable organizations and individuals to provide funding for projects. A substantial network of volunteers in the U.S., which includes a number of former board members, assists with legal advice, bookkeeping, website, communications, and a variety of other projects. the board of directors includes a number of committed professionals, some with prior nonprofit board experience. Many directors and volunteers in the U.S. have ties to or have visited Afghanistan, and two board members reside in Afghanistan full time. Our staff has low turnover and substantial ties within the local community.

We have successfully transferred one school to local Afghan control. We are working on ensuring that education services continue to be provided at our other schools until arrangements are made for transfer of control to the Ministry of Education or a local private organization. We have made significant inroads in the provision of medical services, but that work is never done. And as long as poverty exists, there will always be a need to facilitate distribution of charitable donations.
