Afghanistan Model United Nations
Afghanistan Model United Nations (AFMUN) is HELA's first project, which was started in early 2015. The main purpose of the project is to hold country wide conferences inside the country for the young generation of Afghanistan and we also send delegations to the MUN conferences in different countries like: Qatar, Netherlands, Taiwan and others. AFMUN is Afghanistan's first ever MUN project and till now we have been able to create many MUN clubs in the country in order to make MUN available and accessible for all.
Women empowerment project
This is an initiative by HELA, which is being run by HELA's female young leaders. The main purpose of the project is to train young women in business and entrepreneurship and encourage them to start their own business after the training. This is a six month program where we teach them the basics of different elements that are needed to start their own business. So far we have been able to graduate the very first term of the project which were 20 young women and they are now working in teams of 5 people to start their own projects.
HELA filming project is a mixed gender program and it is basically designed for high school and university level students. We understand the importance of group work and support of genders to each other therefor this will be implemented for both genders. It is a great tool to show people that Afghanistan is not only a place of war but a place of people with great hearts. Also this project aims to train young people in the field of filming and media.
