CHA Mailing List






is funded by the government of Afghanistan aimed to lay the foundations for a strengthening of community level governance, and to support community-managed...

subprojects comprising reconstruction and development that improve access of rural communities to social and productive infrastructure and services. 


CHA as an experience and long standing Facilitating Partner has been facilitated NSP in five provinces of Afghanistan i.e. Faryab, Heart, Balkh, Ghor and Farah (including five districts in


Faryab, two districts in Herat, two districts in Ghor, four districts in Balkh and two districts in Farah).



Through implementation of this program, CDCs serve as a consultative decision-making body that includes men, women and traditionally marginalized members of the community. Through participation in NSP and other programmes, communities acquired and strengthen their skills and attitudes necessary to define, manage and govern their development.



Totally (134) CDCs have established and registered with government during the year 2014 which improves villagers’ perceptions of a wide range of government figures. The democratic councils instituted by NSP appear to coexist with, rather than displace, traditional institutions. Women participation in local governance and the responsiveness of village institutions to women’s need has significantly increased. Women are cognizant of the village leadership and local governance services and appreciably increases attendance by women of meetings of a village assembly.

The program contributed to address the main problem of the community through implementation of NSP subprojects. Totally (489) subprojects have been completed and inaugurated in Faryab, Balkh, Ghor and Hirat provinces. The projects are mostly infrastructure including schools and clinics buildings, community centers, road rehabilitation, culverts, aqueduct, power line supply, micro hydro power, canal construction and water supply network. Through implementation of subprojects, job opportunities as skill and un-skill labors have been provided for the CDCs


CHA provided package of communities based capacity building workshops for the CDCs. The workshops were social mobilization, office bearers, procurement and accounting management, project management, conflict resolution, community participatory monitoring, social audit, environmental social safeguards, human right and gender which totally 1890 male and female members of 134 CDCs participated.
