PARSA is a small, non-government organization (NGO) that has been working directly with needy people of Kabul, Afghanistan, particularly widows, who are on the streets begging, and those who have "fallen through the cracks" of the survey nets of the big NGOs.

Its aim and goal are to find work and/or develop skills so that these people can partly or wholly support themselves and their families. It works in a direct personal way to locate widows and to help them. It is now registered as a charitable corporation in the State of Arizona, USA.

Returned volunteers who served in Afghanistan are already working with this group.
