Contexte
Afghanistan’s poor economic situation is reinforced by war and insecurity with the most vulnerable groups of the population being the worst victims. In addition, traditional believes and customs as well as illiteracy and poor knowledge of human and Islamic rights contribute to a social environment where family violence and other harmful practices are predominant. Finding culturally acceptable and holistic solutions that link up interventions for victims of family violence with programmes that generate income, vocational training and conflict resolution should be sought.

Objectifs
1. Encourage women to take up activities supporting their livelihoods.
2. Explore definitions of family violence and harmful practices and identify culturally appropriate solutions.
3. Build capacity of local organisations and relevant authorities and enable them to address these practices and protect victims.
4. Reinforce collaboration with the Ministry of Women Affairs.

Résultats attendus
1. 80 stakeholders have participated in awareness raising workshops on women and family life and reducing harmful practices.
2. 12 workshops aimed at strengthening women’s skills and capacities have been conducted.
3. 106 different projects have been implemented and 2 813 women have directly benefited from these initiatives and projects.
