Over three decades of conflict not only hindered rural development in Afghanistan, it also forced millions of Afghans to leave their lands and migrate to neighboring countries. Approximately 6 millions refugees were hosted by Pakistan and Iran. Internally, over one million people were displaced because of the conflict. About three in four Afghans have gone through internal, external or multiple displacements in their lives.

We have 14 years’ experience in rural development, public health services and democratic process facilitation in marginalised communities of Afghanistan, which are now home to the internally and externally displaced population.

Community people form development groups through election and participate in development activities. They also make conscious decision about selecting development initiatives appropriate for their communities. The groups also monitor and supervise different development initiatives in the communities such as supply of clean drinking water, basic electricity, basic road structure and many more.

We build capacity of the development groups. We are developing unified village communities where women, groups returned from other countries, and displaced people all can have a voice in the development process.
