Founded in 1996, PARSA is a private non-governmental organization working directly with the disadvantaged people of Afghanistan. PARSA supports communities as they make their own development solutions, focusing on promoting social change and a healthy and fair society for all people but especially women and children.

Building Healthy Families

Psychosocial Services offers training for Afghan professionals who are working in social protection programs with vulnerable Afghan people, including orphans, the disabled, and women who are ‘head of household’. PARSA believes in the desire and ability of Afghan community leaders to rebuild their communities.

Building Economies for Women

Trade Afghan is a product line that markets quality products made and sold by women, priced to sell nationally. By the end of 2013 our goal is to have Trade Afghan products known by Afghan consumers across the country, creating a national market that will be an outlet for economical access for Afghan women.

Building Youth Leadership

PARSA’s Afghan Scout troops serve 1600 children in five provinces. PARSA conducts a volunteer training for Scout Masters certified by World Organization of Scout Movement (WOSM). We are dedicated to spreading the Scout Movement nationally in 2014.
