Mustafa Raheal is serving as a project coordinator for the Professional Psychosocial Care in Shelter Facilities of Afghanistan. He graduated in psychology from Kabul University and holds a national mental health & psycho social counselling certified certificate from the Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health.
In 2016, Mustafa won a youth leader’s scholarship and attended the Women Deliver 4th global conference on women health and wellbeing in Copenhagen Denmark. Highlighting his commitment for psychosocial services, he is one of the emerging civil society leaders of the Afghan civic engagement program, led by Counterpart International – Afghanistan.
Mustafa’s wish is to contribute to a world in which people are conscious, creative and take responsibility for themselves and their environment.
“The Women’s Protection Centers were created in Afghanistan as a response to the dire needs of women and girls who leave unbearable conflicts within family relationships and seek shelter. By providing professional psychosocial or psychological care and mediation services in more than 18 shelter facilities across Afghanistan for women and their families, I am working to address the need for psychosocial care in women protection centers, in order to increase psychosocial wellbeing as well as the safe reintegration of women back into their families.”
