There are more than ten different ethnicities in Afghanistan, including the Pashtun, Hazara, and Tajik.
The Taliban is primarily composed of Pashtun people, with a majority of Tajiks, Turkmens, and Uzbeks.
More than 15,000 Hazara people were executed by the Taliban during their previous reign from 1996 to 2001.
In August of 2021, the United States military hastefully evacuated Afghanistan after twenty years of conflict in the country. The United States left behind thousands of US citizens and at-risk Afghan citizens. These Afghan citizens included people who:
Paws Unite People is responsible for a group of 162 Afghans left behind during the evacuation. All of them qualify for special visa status in the United States, but cannot obtain processing due to the US decision to close the US Embassy in Afghanistan. In order to process their visa status, Paws Unite People have needed to provide shelter in third-party countries to process their visas. The United States government does not pay for the lodging or care for these individuals.
We are asking you to help us #RescueTheRescuers. All donations and online shop earnings will go directly to Paws Unite People to benefit these 162 individuals, many of whom are women and children.
Under Taliban control girls are not allowed to participate in school and women cannot work in Afghanistan. In America, these Afghan children will be able to participate in school and create a future for themselves and their families.
Imagine leaving your home abruptly, forced to leave everything you knew because a repressive regime has gained control. That's exactly what happened in September of 2021, when the United States ended their occupation of Afghanistan and the Afghan National Army was unable to thwart the forces of the Taliban.
The #RescueTheRescuers mission is focused on keeping Afghan children and families safe by helping them resettle in the United States. Once in America, the Afghans who worked with Kabul Small Animal Rescue (KSAR) to rescue dogs, cats, and other domestic animals from the street, will continue their veterinarian work.
Attempt Global aims to end human and animal suffering by creating long-term solutions to neglect, abuse, hunger, poverty, and inequality.
Our mission statement, featured above, is important to us. We spent hours trying to figure out what exactly we wanted to tackle. We knew we wanted to help people and animals, and we knew we wanted to help all over the world. Our mission statement gives us the ability to do both.
It is our promise to you, our supporters and donors, our family and friends, our colleagues and partners, that we will work hard every day to make the world a better place and to help each and every person and animal that we can.
As we continue to grow, we have set out an extensive roadmap internally. These are some of our objectives, as well as some of the ways we intend to fund our objectives.

This should not be considered an exhaustive list of our projects, but rather a starting point to our mission. We intend to help people and animals whenever and wherever we possibly can in the time leading up to our big objectives. These are objectives that will take much longer to bring into reality, and are not inclusive of smaller objectives which will be handled on an as-they-occur basis.
* - The ability to launch these projects will depend entirely on funding and events that occur abroad in the meantime. We sincerely hope to be able to see these projects through, but will need your support to do so.
