We helped change lives in Afghanistan, enabling critical payments

We ensured over 5,000 people were safely paid their severance from four major U.S. Government contractors in Afghanistan and Pakistan when hope were low. 


Before the U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan in August 2021, <10% of 40 million people had a bank account. Those who were banked then struggled to access their money, with some banks claiming that only new deposits could be used.

With one month's lead time, we had supported international organisations to reach 24 of 32 provinces, including the facilitation of salaries to >2,000 teachers across hundreds of schools operating in the country's remotest parts. Within two months, our team had reached every province.
