Celebrating Afghans

UN70 has provided the UN family in Afghanistan the opportunity to celebrate its special relationship with the country and its people. The UN is particularly pleased to mark UN70 by heralding the work of some of the outstanding Afghan professionals it has had the privilege to work with or assist over the years. At the heart of the United Nations work in Afghanistan is the empowerment of Afghans.

The nine professionals featured here are just a small number of those empowered Afghans who are making a difference, contributing to the development of a strong Afghanistan.
