P.S. It’s only available in German for now.
The job situation in Afghanistan is currently catastrophic: unemployment has almost doubled since the Taliban took power. The chance of finding an apprenticeship is slim – for women in particular.
The new project – a training programme to become a jewellery smith – creates 15 training places in the jewellery trade for women aged 17 to 35. In addition to the practical training to become a jewellery smith, in which everything is taught chronologically from the teaching of basic skills to the production of one’s own pieces of jewellery, the training also includes diverse theoretical phases. There, the programme participants learn basic knowledge in the English language as well as in the areas of marketing, health, accounting and design.
The jewellery and blacksmith’s craft is very respected in Afghanistan – the blacksmith’s work of women also enjoys a high social status. Women’s work is often even preferred for filigree and very careful pieces of jewellery. Moreover, blacksmithing offers sustainable job opportunities, as the demand for the craft is very high. Upon successful completion, the participants should be able to start their own business or work in a workshop.
Your donation has never been worth that much! Because we double it together with the Aurora Borealis Foundation Funds. Here’s how it works: You donate 50€, the Aurora Borealis Foundation Funds add 50€ and a total of 100€ goes into the new project, an education programme for women in Kabul. Every donation will be doubled up to a total of 25,000€!
Take advantage of this opportunity and support us in securing funding for the training programme. It is especially important now that women do not lose access to the labour market altogether. They belong: in the labour market, in society and as support for the financial situation of their families.
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.

Supporting members are therefore a central pillar of our association and the lowest-threshold way to sustainably support our work. With a monthly donation of 8 € or more, you create the financial basis for us to provide children in crisis areas with equal access to education.

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.”
