About Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V., Afghanistan:


“Help – help for self-help” is a German non-governmental charity-organization duly registered with the courts of law in Germany and in several host countries, such as Afghanistan. Help was founded in 1981 by concerned Members of Parliament of all parties represented in the German Parliament. We started providing humanitarian assistance for Afghan refugees in Pakistan, and soon extended to development-oriented activities. We provide aid and development-support regardless of race, creed or nationality. Priorities are set on the basis of need and upon the request from partners and vulnerable communities to cooperate fairly and transparently.

Over the past 38 years, Help has extended to worldwide operations. We are engaged both in emergency- and in development-programs. Whenever possible, we link emergency-aid with assistance for self-help. It is our aim to encourage the efforts of communities affected by disasters and political upheaval, while strengthening their capability to improve their living conditions and long-term perspectives.

In Afghanistan, one of the major programs of Help is TVET & Employment Facilitation. Typically, we offer high-standard and long term (6 months) vocational training in marketable skills; provide employment services through the Employment and Entrepreneurship Services Centre / EESC and build up the capacity of communities and relevant staff in sectorial government departments and local NGO/Association partners.
