About People In Need:

PIN is a Czech, non-governmental, non-profit organization founded on the ideals of humanism, freedom, equality, and solidarity. Human dignity and freedom are fundamental values and we believe that people anywhere in the world should have the right to make decisions about their own lives and share the rights expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

People in Need’s Afghanistan country program started in November 2001, providing emergency food distribution in mountainous areas of the central highlands. 20 years later, the program has visibly grown and diversified but continues to promote PIN’s core values: envisioning a world where people are free to make decisions about their lives; a world where people are not restricted by an un-free society, poverty, lack of education or discrimination. Today, we work along the humanitarian and development spectrum, providing immediate aid and supporting the most vulnerable in Afghanistan to find long-term solutions to the challenges they face.


PIN Afghanistan’s three strategic objectives for the current planning period are (1) Agency-driven, transformative, humanitarian assistance; (2) Making markets work for crisis-affected and marginalized communities; and, (3) Harnessing decent, productive, and inclusive livelihoods. Under the current evolving context, the CP is focusing efforts under strategic priority 1 and in particular, supporting people to have (1) enough to eat, (2) a safe and secure living space that supports their health and well-being, (3) the basic items needed to stay safe and warm, and (4) access to education when the normal structures are no longer available to them.
