The Afghan Australian Development Organisation (AADO) provides education and vocational training in Afghanistan for those with minimal opportunities, particularly women and girls, to develop professional skills thereby fostering sustainable livelihoods.
AADO has a proven track record of high outcome, low cost programs delivered by local project staff who have deep community networks and trusted relationships.
AADO respects Afghan culture and traditions, prides itself on minimising overhead costs and distributing close to 100% of its financial resources directly to development projects. We employ a small local project management team and field staff, and create formal and non-formal educational opportunities for disadvantaged Afghans.
In the last ten years, AADO has implemented numerous projects in Kabul, Herat and Parwan provinces, providing vocational training, basic literacy, in-service teacher training and resources for educational institutions. It has also installed wells and sanitation facilities. AADO helps to empower Afghans by providing opportunities to access education and training, advance sustainable livelihoods, improve health and build stronger communities. AADO also works with women and girls, particularly in rural communities, to improve their access to education, health care and employment, to help overcome discrimination and to protect their human rights.
