• Afghan Paramount Welfare & Development Organization (APWDO)


Afghan Paramount Welfare and Development Organization (APWDO) is a national non-governmental not-for-profit organization, established in 2008 by Afghans and registered, in 2010, with Afghanistan Ministry of Economy (MoEc).

The core of our organizational philosophy, at APWDO, is to provide humanitarian support, to the vulnerable communities of Afghanistan, based on the principles of UDHR and the socio-cultural values of our country and to provide innovative, socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable human development solutions through research, dialogue, networking, partnerships, and solutions exchange. APWDO is an indigenous organization that seeks to invest resources, efforts, time and energies in interventions responsive to the local needs, backed by evidence from the ground collected through close consultations with the local communities, formal and informal institutions.

We seek opportunities to develop programs and projects and provide services to contribute to communities’ relief, rehabilitation, and development. We believe that without the proactive and enterprising role of women in the development process, the development narrative in Afghanistan would be a farce. Women development and empowerment is an essential and key area of our focus. 

During the recent years, APWDO has continued its cooperation with many donors such as,  ADALAT – USAID, ACOIII – PAS/ State department, KFZ-USAID, UNHCR, UNOPS, UNAMA, USACA, IRC UNDP/ANBP, FAO DACARR, WSP, UAS, PRT and MRRD, among others.
