Since the Taliban took power, girls and women have been deprived of their basic rights and are increasingly banned from public life. Since December 20, 2022, any kind of education after primary school has been prohibited.This affects secondary schools, but also apprenticeships and university education, and thus endangers the future of Afghan women. The risk of forced marriage, child labour, violence and abuse increases dramatically.
In addition, women have been banned from working for NGOs since December 25. This is a dilemma for international organisations: In order to enforce their believe that women should not be excluded, some NGOs have stopped their work in Afghanistan. At the same time, the Afghan population suffers the most from the lack of aid, and women and girls in particular are punished twice.
Both prohibitions stand in the way of our work: Because the safety of the female local employees has top priority, they are currently working from home. Our educational projects are aimed at girls and boys alike, and girls have so far been allowed to continue to take part in classes at all project schools. Denying them their right to education is unacceptable to us.
Talks are currently taking place with the Afghan government, the UN, the federal government and many other actors, with initial successes already being achieved: Taliban ministers have shared with a high senior UN-official that they will draft new guidelines to enable Afghan women to participate in specific humanitarian efforts.
We are also in contact with the parties involved and are working together on a solution. Due to the current political situation, however, we cannot make any final statements so far. Therefore, we first have to wait and see what the talks and conferences will bring in the coming weeks and months. Until there is a firm decision, one thing is particularly important: the people and the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan must not be forgotten.
In our petition, we call on the German government to finally take responsibility for the situation in Afghanistan. Because: For too long nothing has happened and through the hasty withdrawal of troops and a complete misjudgement of the danger situation, the German government has contributed to the crisis situation in Afghanistan.

With our educational projects, we support schools in establishing their infrastructure, and we strengthen the capacities of our target group by providing, among other things, continuing education in order to create an adequate learning atmosphere and ensure a high quality of education.
In crisis areas, people often lack the bare necessities. Our association works to provide people in need with essential goods at least twice each year.
In the past few years, we have seen an enormous increase in the number of refugees in Germany. We regularly organize initiatives that aim to support their integration in Hamburg.
We are a non-profit organization from Hamburg, which aims to support and improve the learning conditions and educational standards at schools in war and crisis zones. We act independently of political, religious or ethnic interests and decline financial aid from companies that endanger children through their activities and/or goods or contradict us in our work for children’s rights.
Become part of the Visions family. As a sustaining member, you support us with your regular contribution to enable a high-quality teaching and learning environment in schools in crisis areas.
“Education is the first step to independence, to master one’s life and to provide for oneself and one’s family. That is why I want to inspire hope in children with my commitment.”
“Education teaches us means and ways to take control of our lives. It makes us independent and shows us how much we all depend on each other and how important mutual help is.”
“I think this is a great project with lots and lots of heart. It is about your own roots and about implementing something in the places where you know that something is needed.”
“I believe that in smaller organizations, people work with more heart. To be honest, I can’t think of any excuse not to donate money. As an overprivileged, lucky fellow, I think it would be presumptuous not to give anything back.”
“I prefer small associations that I trust. I immediately think: they surely don’t spend half of their donations on administration, as is the case with the big ones. Positive prejudice, in other words.”
“Without education I wouldn’t be where I am now. I am socially active without even thinking about it too much. I now know the people from Visions for Children e.V. personally, and I think that the money is in good hands with them.”
