Where we work

BAAG's Member organisations work across a large number of Afghanistan's provinces.  Click on the provinces of the map below to see which organisations are present there and details of their programmes. 

 

Some of our members - Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International UK, Child Soldiers International and Global Witness - operate on a nation-wide basis rather than in specific provinces.

Oxfam in Badakhshan

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.
