About Organization or Project:
Razi Social Development Organization (RSDO) is an Afghan NGO that implements social development activities in Afghanistan. RSDO works to build and help marginalized communities in order to achieve economic prosperity and boost humanitarian and social capital by providing social, educational, agricultural and livelihood services to vulnerable and marginalized populations. RSDO was established and set up in 2002 under the name of "Abu Hanifeh Orphan High School," to help orphan children who lost their parents and families during the long-lasting war in Afghanistan learn and develop their future. In April 2008 RSDO was re-registered as an NGO with the government of Afghanistan. RSDO developed slowly throughout years of hard work, and now has a permanent stay in the provinces of Herat and Ghor.
