About CRS 

CRS began direct operations in Afghanistan in early 2002. CRS maintains four main offices throughout the country: Kabul, Herat, Chaghcharan, and Bamiyan, with sub-offices in all of these provinces as well as Daikundi. The CRS strategic plan for Afghanistan focuses on poverty and risk reduction, human development and emergency response in rural areas in western and central Afghanistan. CRS works to support:

  • People, especially girls and women from marginalized communities, gain basic education
  • Poor rural and peri-urban households to have increased livelihood security
  • Vulnerable communities to survive shocks without long-term negative impact on their livelihoods

Currently, the CRS/Afghanistan Education program is comprised of several projects in Central and Western Afghanistan.  All projects contribute to CRS’ education program goal to expand quality learning and life opportunities in Afghanistan for marginalized communities and their children.  CRS Herat Office currently manages classes in the Districts of Adraskan, Karokh, Injil, Herat City and Gozara of Herat Province. CRS also manages Temporary Learning Classes in informal settlements of internally displaced persons (IDPs) near Herat City. This broad geographic coverage and the central role of the Government offices and community leaders in the implementation of CBE and Education in Emergencies programming requires extensive and effective coordination between CRS, Government officials, and communities, as well as widespread collaborative monitoring to ensure coverage of all implementation areas.

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.
