Trainings in Kunduz, Takhar, Badakhshan and Helmand Provinces

The Foundation’s Team has trained over 5,000 participants from all provinces in Afghanistan in its training programmes since 2004. A particular focus for this programme has been the north-eastern areas in Afghanistan, particularly the provinces of Kunduz, Takhar and Badakhshan. In 2013, the Foundation’s training placed special emphasis on the rights of women and minors. Participants included legal professionals, school teachers and other civil society professionals who were involved with relevant sectors. The project is being coordinated with the special auspices of the justice institutions and the Ministry of Education.

In addition, a series of seminars in Helmand province has also been implemented, though in extremely difficult circumstances owing to the security situation that persists there. In Helmand province, the more recent focus of the training has been on land disputes and their resolution.

The overall aim of this project is to strengthen the authority and efficacy of judicial institutions in these provinces.
