  • Takhar Education Initiative

    Afghan Connection supports education for Afghan children in remote, rural areas. Working with the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan, AC has focused its educational efforts on Takhar Province. Here the aim is to give children every opportunity to both access and complete an education, whilst also promoting culturally sensitive school environments to encourage more parents to send their daughters to school. AC has done this by supporting the following initiatives:

    ·      School construction for existing schools that have little or no facilities.

    ·      The provision of community-based education for children in the more remote villages who cannot reach schools.

    ·      Teacher training courses to improve standards and to support more training for women, as there are very few female teachers in Afghanistan.

    ·      The provision of training and infrastructure for the District Education Department so that over the coming years this education programme will endure.

    Community development

    Citizens First 

    The project trains CSOs (civil society organisations) in good governance, budget-tracking, policy analysis and advocacy to give them a better understanding of these skills and how to use them to the benefit of their local communities.

    This involves forming advocacy committees to conduct evidence-based advocacy at district, provincial and national levels to discuss problems affecting communities. The aim is to help mitigate these problems, build peace at a community level and connect communities to government. Access to evidence-based advocacy and regular contact with government about the needs of its constituents will lead to more responsive government at all levels. This will contribute to long-term peace and positive change, as civilians feel they can hold their government accountable for the issues that affect their lives.

    The project also provides budget-tracking and policy analysis training for government officials.
