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.

Reducing violence against children in Herat Province, focussing on children in detention and in conflict with the law

This project targets children currently living in the Herat Juvenile Rehabilitation Centre (JRC) and women’s prison. The project aims to build a protective environment for children, by reducing the number of children coming into conflict with the law (either as new offenders or re-offenders), while protecting children from violence, abuse and exploitation in prison, detention centres and within their communities.

  • It promotes successful rehabilitation that increasingly involves families and communities to avoid stigmatisation towards newly released CiCL or consequent violent acts.
  • To support successful reintegration, the project ensures children have a future by either being enrolled into formal schools or starting an income generating activity.
  • The project addresses gaps in services in prison and detention centres, and builds the capacity of juvenile stakeholders, family members and community members to contribute to the overall reduction of violence faced by children in Afghanistan.
