Services

Re-integration Assistance

Sayed Consultancy helps Afghan returnees from EU after their arrival to adjust to their new circumstances and offers them the best assistance for a new future in Afghanistan.

During the initial part of our program, we give them a solid start by offering at least 7-days assistance to help them adjust, talk with them daily and prepare them for the future. To ensure they don’t roam the streets during this period, or leave Kabul prematurely, it is crucial to offer all returnees accommodation in this week.

By preparing returnees thoroughly for a life in Afghanistan we avoid risks. They may get depressed and find solace in drugs, turn their backs to society and join an insurgent group, with damaging domestic or international consequences or they can try to head back to Europe.

Employment Assistance

In employment related support we focus on career development by zooming in on their knowledge, experience, strengths and interests. Once we find a certain strength, we focus on enhancing this strength.

If additional education is required, we support the beneficiary in enrolment. We also offer vocational training and can support related beneficiaries with vocational trainings from other institutions as well.

Due to our long and successful activities in the last years, we have a good network of large companies looking for new employees. We contact them and train returnees in the company’s specific requirements so they can apply for those jobs.

Business Development Assistance

The support for setting up a small business is a complete package for related beneficiaries to prepare them in a professional way and increase their chances of launching a successful business.

The beneficiaries indicate their wishes, needs and requirement to successfully start a business. Based on this, we prepare the required package. Assistant in business plan is an important part of the package. In a practical training beneficiaries learn to write/evaluate a business plan.

Corporate Branding Development is one of the most successful trainings of our company. In this training, we focus on designing a company name, logo, colors, business cards, flyer design, brochures, etc. It consists of a 24-day technical and practical training. Our designers work with each beneficiary to create a demand based corporate branding for each entrepreneur.

Target groups

Afghan returnees from EU

Demand-based services for starting a new life in Afghanistan

Most returnees arrive after months or even years in a country that has changed considerably. In cases where they are expelled by an EU country their return in Afghanistan has a huge psychological impact. They feel hopeless and are in an internal struggle. In this time they don’t know what to do and where to start.

  • Sayed Consultancy helps returnees after their arrival to adjust to their new circumstances and offers them the best assistance for a new future in Afghanistan.
  • Experience tells us that by investing enough time upfront to identify returnee needs, build trust and find the right solution will allow us to create a realistic and achievable re-integration plan, one that makes the best use of resources available.

"If not supported properly, the returnees will find solace in drugs, joining an insurgent group or trying to return to Europe".

Young Professionals

Expanding opportunities in self-proficiency

Employment and entrepreneurship assistance of young Afghans are the principal source of economic growth leading to employment creation, economic activity and development. When jobs are scarce, especially young workers are generally more likely to become unemployed. Compared to adults, the youth of today are almost three times more likely to be unemployed.

  • Sayed Consultancy seeks to promote an entrepreneurial culture among young professionals and thereby provide an option of self-employment and thereby a sustainable income.
  • Sayed Consultancy offers pre-deployment assistance to young professionals and Afghan youth in preparing them for the current job market.

"By expanding opportunities in self-proficiency among young professionals, we invest in our future".
