New members of the Afghanistan forum, introduce yourself here

Hi all,

Newbie on the Afghanistan forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Afghanistan if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi & welcome on board Philipedward - a few more words about yourself would be great just as a proper introduction :)

Living in Kabul for the last 2 years.Enjoying the grapes and peach :d .Looking forward to meet people. Working for an INGO.

Hi Everybody, I am supposed to be coming to Afghan to do some work on a USAID project. Never been there before.  Will probably be there for three weeks. The mission is in October-November. The project is in: Kabul, Nangarhar, Balkh, Jawzjan, Kandahar, Badghis, Herat. Guys, talk to me. How is it like, and what should I expect, and do as a first time.

Just need to be aware of security and safety. As you are going on a USAID project you will be briefed about security and accommodation will be in a secure compound.

I worked there for 2 years with Louis Berger Group on USAID road projects.

Find out where you are allowed to go eg supermarket so that you can bring enough stock
Check if the are security risks associated with working with your employer
Bring warm clothes as winter can get pretty harsh
Hala we go to drink chai

Hi everybody,
I'm a South African who is looking to find a new job , I'm in warehousing and transport hold a forklift  and heavy duty truck licence. not sure how to go about finding a position so decided to post a message here and ask for help if any of you know which way to go about it. I'm 60 but feel like a 40 year old and am certainly not afraid of hard work or working in remote or out the ordinary places. I enjoy mountain bike stage racing which keeps me fit and ready for anything. (although I'm not sure if I will be able to ride there)
Would really like to hear from you.

I´m looking for bottle caps from Afghanistan.
Do you have few for me?

Been around on engineering projects for the past 6 years the experience been great with some breath taking moments ...its abit hard and limited to have grassroots influence and capacity building in any whatsoever way because of the security situation and so on which is quite a disappointment . All in all there is too much diversity and hospitality in this part of the world to be appreciated :)


I am one week old in Kabul as Head of Finance Action Aid Afghanistan. I will be happy to make new friends and share ideas as we all live in one community.

Thank you.

Hi Chris,
Welcome to Afghanistan. As I saw that you are head of Finance so it is interesting for me to be in touch with you to share ideas about Finance,because as a profession I have more than ten years of experience with USAID Projects.

Moderated by kenjee last year
Reason : Please do not share personal contact infos on the public forum.

Am willing to work at Kabul,  Afghanistan , with USAID as electrician. I have never there before. please help.

Hi all,

Not sure if this thread is still active but I currently live in the UK but am keen to explore jobs in the humanitarian sector working with the UN/INGO's in Afghanistan. There's very little information online and entry points seem to be difficult.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!

If looking for work in Afghanistan try the UN website for work there.

I worked there for over 2 years.

Of paramount importance is security and I cannot emphasize this too much. Make sure your employer covers you for full medical insurance including full medivac out of the country.

It is not all beer and skittles there, is stressful and dangerous. Need good, regular out of country breaks.

Check with your Embassy there for security updates and advice.
