Thank you for visiting STAR’S website, Hope that the profile of STARS and its activities in regards to various socio, economic, DRR, education, development and Humanitarian programs delineated will give you a clear picture of the principles for which the organization stands for and is actively working.
Your attention is particularly drawn to millions of those children, aged people and marginalized women who are the worst affected. Therefore, there is an urgent need to address their problems immediately.
The hot issues in Afghanistan are currently the increasing insecurity and internal disparities and its impact on the common people particularly Women, Children, IDPs, and Returnees. This needs the active support of all kind-hearted people.
I strongly believe that a good number of rich people in Afghanistan and international donors would definitely come forward to lend their helping hand to make our endeavors a great success.
However, even very little Humanitarian assistance and your contribution may be, it will add to the whole to bring light and happiness of those hopeless people who have no clear future in the current bleak political situation in Afghanistan.
STARS is part of the greater mission of working for the stability and dignity of the people of Afghanistan. Where STARS has prominent achievements all along with promising future interventions as well, it also admires and encourages the sacrifices and generous efforts of international communities helping Afghanistan’s development and stability. A key element of finding that success is for Afghanistan’s younger population to buy into the new government. This sector of the population makes up two-thirds of the country and is more connected to the world than their predecessors growing up during the era of the Taliban. Many of them hold positions as public administrators in the Afghan government, and some have returned from quality educations overseas to become role models of change in Afghanistan’s economic, social, and political life. There is no reason why Afghanistan can’t produce world-class leaders that bring decisive, committed, and responsible decision-making to lead the country at this critical time.
If the international community wants to ensure Afghanistan never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists, they should continue to engage the young generation in all the political, social and economic processes. This is the only way Afghanistan and the world will truly be able to look back at the previous decade and say all the pain and suffering was worth the cost, and that a new era has begun.
Conclusively, we believe that civil society plays an important role in such a historic era of the country, needs to be vigilant, decisive, and proactive, work as a bridge between the communities and government and keep a close eye on the sensitivity and maintaining the relationship with the international community.
