As part of our corporate social responsibility for the community that we work in, SEPAR International currently participates in a number of community outreach projects in Afghanistan and the UK.   From our vast experience built from years of working with media and NGOs in refugee and IDP camps, SEPAR International has recognised a need to provide help to positively impact the community.

Community Projects

Our work includes providing supplies, shoes and warm clothing to a number of refugees / internally displaced people (IDP’s) located in makeshift camps in Kabul.  We achieve this with a number of local partners and our own employees.

The activity is supported by a UK based school project where children have produced a presentation ‘Save our Feet’ in which they manage the collection and project development to help the many children that roam with bare feet amongst these makeshift camps.


Neema International - Tanzania

SEPAR International currently sponsor a child at the Tuleeni orphanage in Tanzania.  Neema International invests in the youth of Tanzania through innovative education-based projects that synergize environmental and economic sustainability with creative learning and community engagement.

Quality education, positive adult-child relationships, and adequate health and nutrition are essential to children’s development. Neema International provides a multilateral, place-based intervention that meets these needs. Children gain the opportunity to become architects of their own futures and escape the cycle of poverty they were born into.
