Manual about conflict transformation in Afghanistan
The Civil Society and Human Rights Network (CSHRN) is a network of Afghan national organisations that work at human rights and building society. The network was set up in 2004 and has about sixty members at the moment. CSHRN is currently working on a manual about conflict transformation for its members. ICCO is supporting them to do so, from 2008 to 2010.
New peace councils solve local conflicts in Afghanistan
Many Afghans cannot turn to official institutions in order to acquire legal support. These institutions are either too far away, too expensive, or they do not function properly (yet). The traditional structure consisting of Peace Shuras (Peace councils) have not sufficed, due to the long period of war and conflicts and because they embody insufficient legitimacy. Afghan partner SDO ( Sanayee Development Organisation) cooperates with the local community on setting up new peace councils. ICCO and Kerk in Actie support SDO, over the period of 2008-2011.
Innovations for effective programmes in Afghanistan
ICCO and Kerk in Actie are working together with partner organisation DACAAR (Danish Committee for Aid to Afghanistan Refugees) when it comes to their activities in Afghanistan. Their current programme is focused on strengthening and developing DACAAR. They do this by implementing a Geographical Information System. That system helps them develop programmes in a more efficient and effective manner and to implement them with the local population and local communities.
Improved position of women in Afghan region
The organisation AWEC (Afghan Women's Educational Center) works at improving women's position in Afghanistan. AWEC wants to offer the option to women to play an equal part in society. In their current project AWEC focuses on women in the region of Jalalabad, in the southeast of Afghanistan. AWEC wants to empower women in their struggle against the daily occurrence of violence, both within their families and in the broader sense of the outside world. ICCO supports the organisation to achieve this goal.
Violence against children tackled in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan many children encounter violence. Many of them have to deal with emotional and psychological damage because of it. They are seldom being treated or given aid. Partner organisation CCA (Cooperation Center for Afghanistan) wants to break through the cycle of violence. In order to do so the organisation is taking action on several levels. ICCO and Kerk in Actie are supporting CCA from 2008 to 2010.
Working on a safe situation for Afghan partner organisations
In complex conflict regions where ICCO's partner organisations do their job safety has changed. In order to map out the situation, ICCO decided to conduct the 'Safety in high risk areas' research. It showed it was both necessary and desirable to build capacity for Afghan partner organisations in terms of safety & security management.
