Mission: Global Partnership for Afghanistan (GPFA) is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an Afghan-registered NGO. Since 2004, GPFA has worked to help rural Afghans create farm businesses that alleviate poverty, build sustainable livelihoods, and renew an environment that had been devastated by years of war. Its community-based programs have provided thousands of Afghan men and women with the supplies, tools and training they need to revitalize and rebuild the vast network of farmer-owned nursery, orchard, vineyard, and woodlot enterprises that have long formed the backbone of Afghanistans economy. Over the past decade, GPFAs programs have transformed the landscape of rural Afghanistan and improved the lives of over 323,000 men, women, and children in 2,500 villages across 14 provinces. The organizations current programs focus on enabling Afghan women farmers to develop profitable farm businesses and connecting them to markets. This will continue to be a focus through 2014.
