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.

Strengthening local capacities for greater community empowerment in reducing socio-economic vulnerabilites

3 core objectives: Establishment of transparent and accountable mechanisms between the state/public authorities and the NSAs (non-state actors) active in the provinces; Representative bodies of marginalized groups (women and young people) are established and strengthened; Women’s Shuras and youth councils have more pro-active role in decision-making and conflict resolution at the district and provincial level.

Main activities:

  • Measures against grievances – establishing complaint boxes in at least 5 Ministries and the PDCs.
  • Identifying local NGO and capacity-building of the local NSAs through monthly workshops.
  • Establishing networks among NSA and women Shura, youth counsels and local NGOs and introducing them to the relevant provincial level Ministries - follow up on cases reported by the Shura members- promoting accountability and transparency.
  • Establishing literacy classes (along with workshops, trainings and meetings) for the female Shura members and youth council members.
