AWN Capacity Building programms
Wednesday 23 July 2008
Afghans suffered from more than two decades of devastating war, resulting in large-scale destruction of the economy. Conflicts and the subsequent collapse of central government and social structures left many Afghans with an unfavorable and uncertain environment, with common property resources degraded, and unable to access the skills and inputs needed for livelihood security. There has been a massive collapse of state institutions to deliver services and a serious deterioration of commercial activities. The linkage roads were significantly damaged resulting in difficult access to districts and the neighboring provinces.
One of the AWN’s objectives is to build the capacity of Afghan women to take active part in Afghan community attitude towards women and children and participate in rehabilitation and reconstruction of the county in the private as well as civil service.
Capacity building constituted the largest part of our program during 2004/2005 consisting of workshops on Gender base violence, women and children legal rights, Management, Finance Networking Civic Education, Leadership, Hardware and soft ware and effective communication. Efforts aimed to develop human skills or societal infrastructures within a community or organization needed to reduce the level of risk. In extended understanding, capacity building also includes development of institutional, financial, political and other resources, at different levels and sectors of the society.
