Our Projects In Afghanistan

At MEHHRO, We are committed, passionate and proud of what we do.

Conflict Resolution and Peace Building:

Although Afghanistan has a good legal and policy framework for formal judicial system, most of the marginalized people still largely depend on informal traditional justice system due to different structural and behavioral problem. In this circumstances, MEHHRO is working with community people, traditional leaders and government to ensure rule of law in both formal and informal system. MEHHRO’s conducted several awareness and training programs for the formal and informal justice sector and tribal leaders on conflict resolution mechanisms, alternative methods of conflict resolution, case recording and case referral procedures. Also facilitated 150 Jirgas (traditional informal dispute resolution method) leading to peaceful resolution of conflicts. Through these campaigns and trainings over 50,000people benefitted. Over 300 Govt. officials, community and tribal leaders were trained and about 500 cases of dispute were resolved or referred for further action. USAID/DAI and CCI were the major donors for these programs.
