Summary

Nearly 70% Afghans are unable to meet their basic needs for food due to low household incomes, a struggling economy, and three years of drought which have reduced crop production and increased prices. This project identifies vulnerable families in communities in northern Afghanistan and provides these families with staple food supplies and household items. This project also employs women to produce the household items such as blankets and supports Afghan shopkeepers by purchasing items locally.

Challenge

Nearly 70% of Afghans are not able to meet their basic needs due to rising food prices, a high unemployment rate, decrease in workplace wages, lower crop production due to drought and natural disasters, and sanctions limiting imports. In 2023, the World Food Program stated, "that malnutrition rates in Afghanistan were at a record high with half the country suffering from severe hunger throughout the year." Additionally two-thirds of the population is in need of humanitarian assistance.

Solution

AAFF partners with Afghan communities to identify the most vulnerable Afghan families suffering from food insecurity. We meet with each of the families to understand their needs. Approved families receive staple food supplies that typically supports a family of 7. The supplies vary per distribution but usually include flour, oil, rice, and beans. Additionally, we empower Afghan women by employing them to make staple household items used in the distributions such as blankets.

Long-Term Impact

Supporting Afghan families with food aid prevents starvation, malnutrition, and promotes health in other aspects of life. Providing women with a job they can do at home helps them to provide for their family despite the restrictions on work. Child marriage is on the rise as fathers see no other option but to sell their daughters in marriage to provide for their families. Providing families with food aid provides them hope and the opportunity to make choices for the wellbeing of their families.
