The work that Shindand Women Social Foundation has done over the four years in Shindand has been crucial for the growth of women and young girls in Shindand District. We have also been involved in food distribution with the World Food Program via Samandar Development Program (SDP).
From weaving the gabions for a protective wall to literacy classes from animal husbandry program to computer classes SWSF's has tried to be creative in ensuring women are participating in diverse programs and that our women are trained and made a productive member of Afghan society.
For our girls and women to be educated and teach the next generations of Afghans to be more dynamic and involved in building a better future.
We ask all those who are interested to see a better Afghanistan to support us in this worthwhile path.

In one of the most successful training programs in Shindand District, SWSF conducted a computer and English training funded by the US Consulate in Herat. 100 girls and 100 boys were trained in computer and taught English for six months.
This project was done based on the demand made by the youth of the area, for the need to gain access to technology and be able to communicate with the outside world.
In an effort to improve the skill sets for young women in the field of math and science SWSF has conducted special classes for young women in school. Its a program that is being well recieved and provides practical knowledge to the girls to utilize in their school and ultimately in their daily life. There were more than 100 girls that have benefited from this program.
In partnership with Marshall Plan Charties, a US-based NGO, SWSF held tailoring classes in vocational center in the southern village of Khairabad. More than twenty women were able to benefit from these classes. These classes train women in new skills, operating a sewing machine and allow them to interact with other women, which helps them to support each other in the long run.
