    Strengthening Resilience of Afghanistan’s Vulnerable Communities Against Disasters (SRACAD)

    The SRACAD project has been designed with a strong emphasis on community-based preparedness for natural disasters, with the principal vehicles for this work being government institutions, community structures and schools.  Given these weaknesses in the area of community-based disaster preparedness, the SRACAD project will work closely with government institutions to build capacity and understanding of resilience, DRR and climate-related risks through local community structures and schools. SRACAD aims to ensure that government institutions have the knowledge needed to effectively respond to natural hazards such as floods, droughts and avalanches, as well as plan for adapting to the wider impacts of climate change.

    Women’s Economic Empowerment

    This project mainly focuses on household poverty reduction through the economic empowerment of women by building their human and social capital and provision of resources and linkages with markets. The project enhances economic opportunities and resources available to local women by building financial capital of women through saving and micro credit that will give them ready access to cash. Building women’s human and social capital will give them improved self-esteem, confidence, leadership capability and it will help them to develop their solidarity network. The project will improve women beneficiaries earning through markets-driven livelihood options such as horticulture fruit and vegetable processing, livestock rearing, dairy development and apiculture (honey harvesting and processing) and setting up non-agro enterprises.

    Children/social work

    My Rights, My Voice

    The project has created 10 community-level youth groups, three districts-level youth groups and one provincial youth group (for boys and girls) in 4 provinces (Kabul, Balkh, Daikundi and Badakhshan).

    The groups discuss, advocate and campaign for young people’s rights, especially about education, health issues and involvement in policy change.

    The groups have built wide networks for knowledge-sharing. Oxfam and its partners train the groups in campaigning, lobbying, budget-tracking and monitoring, as well as in how to analyse and use the data they collect.

    The project engages directly with communities and government at provincial and national levels to champion the creation of policies that reflect young people’s concerns. It lobbies for greater government investment in services for children and young people, particularly health and education, as well as increased donor funding directed at youth concern.

    Community development | Health | Livelihood | WASH

    During the funding cycle (2015 - 2017) we plan to continue work with underserved rural communities in the provinces of Faryab, Ghor and Badakhshan. The prgramme will address problems of unsafe water, poor sanitation and hygiene, complications with pregnancies, a shortage of income generating opportunities, vulnerabilities to disasters (i.e., droughts, landslides, etc.) and a lack of nutritional training and food availability.

    These interlinked problems of poverty have often been a result of communities living in locations that are prone to natural disasters, with chances for improvement and development missed as a result of decades of conflict. Over the next 3 years an estimated 38,000 people will benefit from the changes brought about by project activities involving their families.

    Two girls, from Badhakshan and a remote corner of Kabul Province respectively, are sponsored to attend medical school in Kabul.

    The girls’ progress is monitored and it is intended to reward good results by giving them financial support for the duration of their studies.

    In addition, scholarships have been given to a further 19 young women from various provinces to study for degrees in law, economics, or business. None of these students would be able to attend their college of further education without financial assistance.
