Welcome to Morning Star Development!


Morning Star is a community of people who believe we can make a positive difference in the lives of Afghan families. Recently, one of the Tribal Elders in a remote village in rural Afghanistan said it best. "We have been waiting and praying for decades that someone would come and help us, now Morning Star is here." What a privilege it is to daily engage with Afghans, and to collectively find solutions for the many challenges they face.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better. I would love to have you join our cause and make a real difference in the lives of Afghan families – and even consider visiting Afghanistan.

Our new CEO, Lars Peterson and I always appreciate hearing from you, so please feel free to contact us directly by clicking here.
