CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMS

After 35 years of war in Afghanistan, the country's non-governmental organization (NGO) sector has not had the opportunity to mature and develop to its potential. Due to decades of conflict, the need for international aid and development funds far exceeded the funds available. Furthermore, as Afghanistan enters a new stage of development, new methods of assessment to ensure the inclusion of all members of society are required. At DELTA we are working on capacity building in Afghanistan. We integrate and promote quality and sustainability of rehabilitation service in selected districts of Kandahar province through building the capacities of communities and health providers. DELTA is focusing on training and one-on-one consultations with local organizations. Training workshops are designed to teach local organizations best practices in administration and operations and provide tools, case studies and methodologies. In addition these workshops encourage discussion, idea generation and coordination between local organizations as well as with governmental agencies.

EDUCATION & ASSISTANCE SEVICES PROGRAM

Thirty years of conflict and political unrest destroyed the Afghan education system. In 2001, after the fall of the Taliban, net enrollment was estimated at 43 percent for boys and a dismal 3 percent for girls. The situation for females was especially dire: they had been forbidden to attend school or teach during Taliban rule. Moreover, there were only about 21,000 (largely under-educated) teachers for a school-age population estimated at more than 5 million—or about 240 students for every marginally trained teacher. Recognizing that education would play a vital role in the reconstruction and development of Afghanistan, DELTA launched since 2005 a series of education programs aimed at providing access and quality education to Afghan students at all levels. To accommodate Afghanistan's fragile and fluid situation, these DELTA education programs had broad objectives underpinned by principles of participation, coordination among donors and with government agencies, and a focus on females. Specifically, these programs aimed to reconstruct the education sector.

EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

DELTA has been working in Afghanistan since 1992, providing aid services to people who have suffered for generations. Poverty, war, natural disasters and drug trafficking have all contributed to the anguish of the Afghan people. Nearly 3 million people in Afghanistan are affected by a drought that has caused crops to fail, leaving many in a constant struggle to feed their children and families. DELTA is working hand in hand with public and private partners to help avert a child hunger crisis. Parents need support to buy food for their children as they cannot depend on fall harvests to feed their families. DELTA is advancing a plan to temporarily employ parents of children in need on projects to improve local reservoirs, agricultural canals and other critical drought-related projects. DELTA struggles together with people and government agencies in Kandahar province to eradicate poverty and injustice in the region. We provide emergency assistance in disasters and work for long-term development in local communities. In order to address the root causes of poverty, we advocate for just decisions by public authorities, business and religious leaders.

WATER SANIATION & HYGIENE PROGRAM

Clean water is a basic need. Yet many people in Kandahar do not have access to clean drinking water. The availability of clean drinking water is obviously of great importance to human health. Unclean water causes infectious diseases resulting in many casualties. However, not having access to clean water also affects education and poverty. Women and children are forced to walk long distances to fetch water, often in unsafe areas. As they need so much time to fetch water, there is no time left for going to school or working.

PEACE BUILDING & CONFLICT RESOLUTION PROGRAMS

Successful conflict resolution occurs by listening and providing opportunities to meet each side's needs, and adequately address their interests so that they are each satisfied with the outcome. Therefore, building the capacity of community elders, organizations working at the community level, youths and traditional councils for promote peace and deliver effective conflict resolution programs, which can play a vital role in reduction of conflicts and cultivate the culture of peace at community level in Afghanistan.
