JAHAN, (which means world or universe) asks you to Join and Help Afghanistan Now. JAHAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-political, humanitarian organization committed to helping women and children inside Afghanistan find their way toward self-sufficiency and independence. The country has been devastated and ravaged by a 22-year war and the population has been and still is in immediate need of assistance and has become dependent on charity. However, we must try and focus on projects and programs with longer-term goals. Begging encourages dependence, removes a sense of self-respect, and destroys a person's dignity and even his/her freedom. Through JAHAN and our work with other organizations, we hope to put greater emphasis on helping the population toward self-sufficiency. JAHAN asks all of us to unite and help those less fortunate.

Please be assured that 100% of all donations are applied to projects and does not cover any travel or personnel salary and expenses. We use an all-volunteer staff.
