Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee BRAC, Afghanistan Charity Profile
The mission of BRAC Afghanistan is to work towards a just, enlightened, healthy and democratic Afghanistan free from hunger, poverty, environmental degradation and all forms of exploitation based on age, sex and ethnicity. In its work towards this vision, BRAC Afghanistan implements programming in Education, Health, Microfinance, Agriculture, National Solidarity Program, and various capacity building projects including Women Training and Production Centers and the Demobilization and Reintegration Project for Child Soldiers. However, the threat of continued conflict is never entirely eradicated. The rise of fundamentalist forces in the Pashtun region, the increase in drug trafficking activities along Afghanistan's many borders, and the legacy of internal strife make rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts a challenging undertaking. BRAC's 33-year history has yielded the understanding of development as a complex undertaking requiring years of concerted, unified effort from all parties. As a result, BRAC Afghanistan has maintained a strong working relationship with the Government of Afghanistan, working closely with the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, Education, Health, MISFA and Women's Affairs.
