Confectionery Shop 2.0

After the success of our Confectionery Factory and Shop in Afghanistan’s Capital, Kabul, Mahboba’s Promise has dreams of expanding. Our Confectionery Factory has become 100% self-sufficient! The profit made from this social enterprise is invested back into the new shop AND more importantly, assists with the operating costs of our Kabul Hope House.

What's a Hope House?

Mahboba’s Promise operates 4 Hope Houses across Afghanistan, a country that has been ravaged by armed conflict, instability and poverty for over 3 decades. Our Hope Houses are safe and secure homes for orphan children, outreach hubs for war widows, and learning centres for the surrounding community.

The Dream

Currently, the Confectionery Factory in Kabul trains young orphans in sweet making and business administration to ensure they have a smooth transition into adulthood. Our dream is to build a second Confectionery Shop in Panjshir Valley, just over 100 kms north-east of Kabul, which one day will support the running costs of our Hope House in Panjshir Province.

Why Should You Help?

In a country of over 2 million orphans, half a million widows and only 30% adult literacy rate, self-sufficient and sustainable projects like this one are critical. Your contribution to this small social enterprise plays an important part in a much bigger picture.

Help us build our second confectionery shop in Panjshir Valley so that we can provide a better future for Afghanistan.

We love contributions big and small, including sharing our dream with your friends, family and colleagues.
