The outside world still sees Afghanistan with bioscope as a nation having two diverse characteristics. On one hand, it is struggling to get out of its troublesome past, which, it has successfully done to a great extent with the able support of helping countries; on the other hand, it is a country which offers virgin territory for business to flourish.
We envisage a bigger and better future for the nation, fully aware of its troublesome past. We believe every human being dreams of a sustainable livelihood. A positive initiative towards employment and sustainable income generation can ensure realization of such dreams. Hereby, through our business model, we envisage our activities to benefit socioeconomic upliftment of the people, positively contribute to the environment, ensure application of technology for sustainable development of agriculture and work on the principles of sustainability and fair trade.
We believe in the symbiotic principle on which this universe survives. Nature teaches that we all have to give back from where we extract resources to live and thrive. At Kanda Fruit, we value the ample resources at our helm and specifically put a very high value on the human resources. We understand the fact that, in our case, we have been blessed with an exemplary opportunity to execute our responsibilities towards the society which needs able shoulders to support any such responsibilities for the betterment of the community in general.
As a part of our Social Corporate Responsibility program, we have funded the construction of the Pallet Scanner Building at the Kandahar International Airfield in order to aid logistics and facilitate movement of cargo efficiently.
As envisaged, we believe in the overall development of all partners in the entire producer-consumer chain, to be able to achieve our goal for becoming a leading organization in the agriculture business in Afghanistan. We work hand-in-glove with all our associate growers, educating them about Good Agricultural Practices, providing exposure to international expertise, teaching precision agriculture techniques, lending consultancy for integrated farm management and product development – all as a part of our Social Corporate Responsibility, with the sole intention of making Afghan agriculture self-sustainable and globally competitive to ensure optimum income generation to the farming community which will ensure a better standard of living for them.
We further intend to set up educational institutes for the local community in order to ensure that, while they toil hard for a better future, their children are not deprived of their basic right to education.
Our activities are environment-friendly and positively contribute to the environment. Through promotion and application of precision agriculture techniques, we ensure optimum utilization of natural resources – especially water, the most valuable and rapidly depleting natural resource. Through Good Agricultural Practices, we ensure minimum use of agro-chemicals. In our processes, we ensure there is no generation of industrial effluents or any other toxic agents which contribute to environmental pollution.
