About Resilience Environment and Humanitarian Aid Organization (REHA):

Resilience, Environment, and Humanitarian Aid (REHA) is a transformative non-governmental organization (NGO) committed to empowering communities and safeguarding the planet. Officially registered with the Ministry of Economy of Afghanistan, REHA is a specialized entity dedicated to driving positive change in building the resilience.

At the heart of REHA's mission lies a steadfast dedication to environmental protection, climate change resilience and adaptation, and disaster risk reduction. Through a comprehensive and innovative approach, the organization tackles these complex challenges head-on, blending "hard" and "soft" interventions to deliver tangible impact.

REHA's "hard interventions" manifest as robust infrastructure development, cutting-edge engineering solutions, and strategic physical projects that mitigate the effects of climate change and environmental hazards. Complementing these tangible actions, the organization's "soft interventions" empower communities through capacity-building initiatives, knowledge sharing, awareness campaigns, advocacy efforts, and policy development.

At REHA, the future is not something to be merely observed, but actively shaped. Through its groundbreaking initiatives and collaborative partnerships, the organization is fortifying the foundations of a world where resilience, environmental harmony, and humanitarian aid converge to create a brighter, more secure tomorrow for all.

Who we are?

Afghanistan has one of the slowest internet speeds in the world. Broadband connection is not available in everywhere and mobile data as a most used way to connect to the world is very expensive. Job search portals are very heavy and takes lots of time to load; therefore making it very hard and time-consuming for job seekers to find their dream job. To address this problem we launched Afghanistan's first speed optimized job search portal, with at least 15 times faster load time and maximum 200 kbs page size.
