Afghanistan

COVID-19 Update: March 27th 2020

The number of cases in Afghanistan is growing and Government offices have closed down. ‘Forgotten No More,’ Hagar Afghanistan’s programme for boys, is still open but both the political and Coronavirus situations are being monitored closely. Hagar staff are being picked up from their homes every day and taken to work so they don’t have to use public transport  and there are hand washing stations at the entrances to both the boys centre and office. Several trainings and workshops have been cancelled

Hagar Afghanistan are committed to stepping up their actions if the situation escalates further. 

Our Work in Afghanistan

Read about the incredible family reunion Hagar recently facilitated here:

Afghanistan has one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world, with deep beliefs about gender roles. The ongoing conflict and consequent displacement of so many, also makes this nation a perfect target for traffickers. A study of 210 stakeholders in Afghanistan in 2014 (including 130 boys) found, for example, that on average one in ten boys interviewed had experienced human trafficking!

Hagar Afghanistan is one of the only organisations in the country delivering the long-term support services required to recover from such trauma. Staff walk the whole journey with the boys they encounter, each one traumatised as a result of the abuse they have suffered.

Hagar Afghanistan is also working with the government to combat the trafficking of boys and raise awareness about women’s rights.
