Our Work

Afghans Empowered believes in a bottom-up, and holistic approach that focuses the needs of local communities through the engagement with local leaders and organizations who've served their communities for years. Our partnerships are mutual engagements that focus on highlighting the works of existing projects, and supporting the sustainability of these projects.

Generation Outside of Afghanistan

Together with GOA, we advocate for, and support, Afghan communities in Athens, Greece. Our work seeks to support the capacity of services such as Greek, and English language courses, computer skills classes, sewing circles, and legal services. Through this partnership, we educate communities to build solidarity with Afghan-nationals seeking asylum in Greece, and the European Union.

As technical partners, we seek to support the sustainability of Learn Afghan’s maternal healthcare, and digital literacy projects in Kandahar, Afghanistan and other provinces.
