Abasha was founded in early 2019 as a non-profit association in Germany. Our mission is to support young initiatives in difficult surroundings with their commitment to provide sport and education programs to kids and young adults.
We support existing projects, which ideally were initiated by the local population. Following the guiding principle “help for self-help”, we enable initiatives to find their way into a sustainable project structure. We don’t want to dictate our ideas, but rather help local people implement their own projects. Abasha sees itself as a start-up aid for young initiatives in difficult circumstances, for which we provide mentoring as well as access to networks and financial resources.
Drop and Ride in Kabul, Afghanistan, is the first project supported by Abasha. “Drop and Ride” symbolizes “dropping” the weapon and “riding” a bike instead. Drop and Ride resulted from a youth initiative from West-Kabul that wanted to create a bicycle club to address social problems through sport and education programs. The long-lasting and close cooperation with the project, which was founded by young people on their own initiative, serves Abasha as a pilot project to learn and prepare for the support of future partners.
Then you’ve come to the right place. For us, sport is more than just exercise: It connects people, regardless of social background, gender or religion. Sport also empowers children and young people and conveys values such as tolerance, fairness and self-confidence.
Everyone has a right to education. Free access to education is a cornerstone of a functioning society and the key to many challenges of our time.
We need your support so that we can assist young projects worldwide! Abasha sees itself as a link between the projects and supporters worldwide – like you! Find out how you can help:
