Latest Stories of Transformation

Together with our donors, the Hagar Afghanistan team run two core projects currently. The first of these is the ‘Forgotten No More’ shelter (FNM), a project run specifically to help young boys who have been abused recover from their trauma. The second is ‘Empowering Women for a Better Future’ (EWBF) which operates with the belief that economic participation is an essential step for women recovering from violence or exploitation, and that this form of empowerment results in a healthier society overall. Please enjoy these recent updates from these two transforming projects!
