Who we are

The establishment of VAFO was a necessary step because it is time we got together and organized so that we can make our voice heard and help shape society.

Our History

VAFO are eleven non-profit associations that have come together to form a nationwide association. Our members operate in six federal states and various subject areas - in Germany, Afghanistan and worldwide.

During the first lockdown of the corona pandemic in spring 2020, five of our future members met in online meetings to discuss, plan and coordinate the establishment of an association. From the online meetings a statute arose, with this and through countless telephone calls prospective members were gained. Finally, we took advantage of the partial relaxation in the summer to meet physically for a founding conference in Berlin. At the two-day conference we adopted our statutes and elected the board. Thus the "Association of Afghan Organizations in Germany" was founded on 08/28/2020.
