We are implementing a programme to empower civil society organizations (CSOs) engaged in the promotion of democracy in Afghanistan. Following a rigorous selection phase, 40 Afghan civil society organizations will be selected to participate in the programme.

These organizations will receive targeted training, mentorship, and support through the delivery of high quality interventions that are designed to strengthen their leadership and operational capacity to manage and implement successful programmes in the run up to the elections.
Lack of funding, security concerns, government corruption, and limited organizational capacity are factors that hamper the effectiveness of CSOs in Afghanistan. These organizations have the potential to become advocates for a strong and active democratic society. CSOs are becoming increasingly crucial as a counter to corruption, and have an important role to play in increasing accountability and providing disenfranchised Afghans with a voice.

Ensuring the sustainability of CSOs is an important precursor to supporting democratic processes in Afghanistan. In order for organizations to play the increasingly important democratic watchdog role, they are in need of specialized training and mentorship to become more robust and sustainable.

Organizations require a solid management and institutional structure that is capable of delivering high quality services in a competitive environment where funding opportunities are becoming increasingly scarce.
