Vision & Mission


Aschiana invests in the education and well-being of vulnerable children in Afghanistan to give them hope for a brighter future and to contribute to lasting peace and security for the nation.

Our mission is… 

  • To support street-working and war-affected children in Afghanistan, who are vulnerable and disadvantaged, and assist to improve their quality of life.
  • To help the children and their families combat poverty by providing the means to better their future.
  • To improve the social, economic, physical, cultural and mental state of vulnerable groups of children, with focus on their basic education.
  • To providelivelihood trainings to the youths through which they could increase their existing earnings or start earning from it.


Aschiana’s vision is to reduce the number of street-working children in Kabul, Mazar-e-Sharif, Jalalabad, Gardiz, Herat, Kandahar, and Bamyan to a quarter over the next 10 years. All these are cities are in different provinces of Afghanistan and majority of the internally displaced persons, returnees and other deprived groups live in these locations in informal settlements or temporary camps.
