Afghanistan NGO/CSO Capacity Support Project
Project objective

The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to enhance the capacities of select registered national and local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to improve their performance and effectiveness.

Project Summary

The project provides support to the non-government and civil society organizations (CSOs) and is implemented by the UNDP. The project strengthens  the capacities of select NGOs and CSOs, ultimately contributing to sustaining the provision of basic services and to providing life-saving support to the most vulnerable populations. The project aims to target NGOs and CSOs that improve basic service delivery and promote socio-economic empowerment of women and girls. Special focus will be placed on NGOs and CSOs engaged in service delivery in the four priority basic services sectors (health, agriculture, livelihoods, and education) and on women-led NGOs and CSOs, as well as those with programs and activities focusing on the socio-economic empowerment of the most vulnerable populations (girls and women; youth; persons with disabilities).  The project focuses on Afghan national and local organizations that have a well-established track record and carry legitimacy within their communities.
