1. Higher Education
"Education system in Afghanistan is in a big mess. Only the rich can get a quality education, while the poor can't even find enough money to feed themselves!"
"Proper education and training is every citizen's right. Why can't every kid in Afghanistan be given the opportunity to obtain quality education?"
SF (Shams Foundation) is dedicated to empowering women and rehabilitating the education system in Afghanistan. Our focus is accelerated Higher Education

2. Health & Care:
Beginning in 1979, military conflict destroyed the health system of Afghanistan.
Most medical professionals left the country in the 1980s and 1990s, and all medical training programs’s ceased.
In 2004 Afghanistan had one medical facility for every 27,000 people, and some centers were responsible for as many as 300,000 people.
In 2004 international organizations provided a large share of medical care.
An estimated one-quarter of the population had no access to health care
SF is consulting international professionals to launch Free & Low Cost Clinics & Dispensaries in different provinces and hiring team of volunteers to provide awareness of maternal problems to reduce the death rate of new born children and vaccination for different diseases in rural areas very soon

The purpose of the VTP is to increase self-sufficiency of vulnerable women to promote the socio-economic development and reconstruction of Afghanistan.
The project will work with local partners and provide holistic and integrated vocational training, literacy courses and employment assistance to the target group. The main target group is widows in Kabul benefiting from the feeding program. However, other vulnerable women and a limited number of their unemployed adult children will benefit from vocational training and employment assistance. The project will work with 2,000 widows/vulnerable women and 8,000 children/dependants (based on average of 4 children per family).

English language training will allow students to work for international companies or government offices.
