Our work

NAC approaches the UN Sustainable Development Goals not as siloed goals to be addressed in isolation from one another, but as part of an interconnected, holistic whole.
All our projects are dedicated to ending poverty and hunger, promoting good health, reducing inequality, and promoting peace, inclusiveness and gender equality in Afghanistan.

Health

NAC works to give all Afghans equal rights, and the opportunity to decide on their own lives and their own sexual and reproductive health. Women’s access to education, health care and work are fundamental to achieving the goal of good health and quality of life for all.

Education

All NAC education activities aim to make rural communities able to provide children with the best education available and give adults opportunities to improve the lives of their families.

Natural resources

The impacts of good natural resource management lead to positive results in other fields as well. The sustainable management of pastures contributes to food security. Reforestation and water management can greatly reduce the risk of natural hazards.
