Afghan Action (AA) is a charity working in England and Afghanistan with a view to providing the skills necessary for Afghan citizens to rebuild the local economies within their country.
Based in the UK, AA opened a training center in Karte Se, Kabul in 2005 where young men and women are taught an employable skill in addition to IT skills, basic literacy and numeracy. Its work has also grown to include engagements with the Afghan diaspora community in England, while also promoting the country's often-overlooked positive qualities.
Afghan Action feels very strongly that the people of Afghanistan can act as "human resources" and positively contribute to the country's struggling economy if they are given the time, training and opportunity. Training young men and women in sewing and carpet-weaving, AA hopes to provide employment opportunities in a country currently lacking sufficient social services and government infrastructure.
