Addressing the needs of the very vulnerable children and youth in five provinces of Afghanistan


Développement et Coopération EUROP AID

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : 2008 - 2012

Partenaires : Childs Right Consortium (CRC) led by Terre des hommes


Afghanistan’s complex environment, laden with insecurity, is further worsened by widespread poverty. With more than 50% of the population under the age of 18, many Afghan lives have been shaped more by war than by stability and peace. These children, besides deprivation of basic rights, are often victims of lack of care and protection. Thus this project aims at developing models of good social protection services for vulnerable children. With children as the primary focus, some of the activities include providing direct services to ensure better living conditions and inclusion in society, training of Governmental staff and NGOs and schooling children and communities to acquire life skills and capabilities


1. to protect most vulnerable children.
2. to address day-to-day survival needs of street, working and displaced children.
3. to train organisations and institutions working with children on how to ensure a protective setting for children in particular those in conflict with the law.
4. to attend to the special needs of abused children in need of emergency protective care, or socially excluded on account of severe handicap.


1. Around 19000 children were registered in the Child Rights Consortium programme.
2. Approximately 4561 children have been reintegrated in formal schools

EC contribution : € 7.9 million (100% of the total budget)
