Message of the CEO

Afghanistan is mountainous country with a pleasant climate for living, commerce and agriculture. The country’s mountains are home for majority of poor where muddy huts are built despite precious resources inside those mountains.

Therefore, to address the issue, the solution should be mainstreamed in the capital region including Kabul, Parwan, Kapisa, Maidan Wardak and Logar Provinces.

So far, the development projects; urban, infrastructure, agricultural, industrial or any other economic development projects in the country particularly at the capital region have not been sustainable. read more...
