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.

Within and Without States II

Establish 9 Community Peace Promoters at community, district and provincial level, consisting of women, youth, community elders, power holders, and government official directly involved in peace building process of Afghanistan. These aim to bring together these CPPs as collectives voice for bringing peace in Afghanistan and to engage women in peace building process. The CPPs will also be supported to actively engage with formal and informal institutions (including through the ACSONP network) at provincial and national level to effectively advocate for their involvement in provincial and national peace processes.

The CPPs work to increase the number of women and youth mediators in communities and to identify issues such as local disputes related to women's issues or social conflicts between communities. The groups then take these issues to ACSONP to find a solution.

The project will have a strong focus on ensuring the institutional capacity of ACSONP structures to ensure sustainability and the ability of these structures to continue.  In addition, there is a focus on strengthening the membership body and national level lobbying and advocacy to support peace building efforts with government

Finally, WWS-II will move from creating spaces for ACSONP to engage with government to identify opportunities for ACSONP to enter (preferably through invitation) existing spaces for dialogue and policy development with government.
