"موږ ډیر مثبت لیدلوری لرو چې نړۍ تراوسه لیدلې ده"
We believe that supporting men traveling solo should be central to social development and aid delivery, given their potential to enrich their host nation’s society when provided with the initial support required by any individual.
We are committed to challenging stereotypes and to supporting these men, both individually and as a community, to help them to build a solid base of knowledge and a support network to work towards stability, integration and autonomy.
