If you’ve been moved by the plight of Jabar & Zahir and other addicted families you can help in several ways.

Jabar & Zahir’s families need food, clothing and a water well installed in their compound.  We are looking at ways we can help them achieve this and are setting up a fund where people can donate.  We’re very pleased to also report that as of July 2010, Gulparee, Sabera & Zahir are now clean of their addiction.  Jabar however was caught stealing and is now in jail in Herat, where we are assured he is being treated well.  Jawed Taiman is in direct contact with his jail guards and is being kept updated with his situation.

Afghanaid is an international humanitarian and development non-governmental organisation (NGO) which has worked alongside Afghan communities for nearly three decades. They currently work directly with over 1 million adults and children focusing on long term sustainable development in some of Afghanistan’s poorest rural areas.

Afghan Action In 2005, Afghan Action opened the doors of their training school in Karte Se, Kabul. Afghan Action’s aim was and still is to offer hope of a brighter future to young men and women by equipping them with a useful skill, basic literacy, numeracy and IT skills.

Their work has expanded to projects in the UK where they work with the Afghan diaspora in order to help their voice be heard on both a local and national level. They also promote Afghanistan and want to inform people of the positive aspects of the country which are, sadly, all too often overlooked. Afghan Action’s work features in the film when Jabar & Zahir visit the carpet weaving factory. Learning skills such as carpet weaving helps to give young adults skills and an income.
