Background Information

NECDO owned by local Afghan women, it is non-governmental, impartial and non-political organization, registered with Ministry of Economy in 2005 with INO.95. When Afghan nation was passing from the time-tested moments of its history. The Soviet hand over and destructive civil war of Mujahedeen resulted in material and spiritual losses for the nation. NECDO started its activities with small means, and a great purpose, which based on humanitarian and development assistance. During social activities in camps, NECDO realized that Peace in Afghanistan is possible through education, capacity building, gender equality, and income generation programs. This was the priority set forth in that time.

Therefore, NECDO has contributed for women, youth, and children through its multidimensional activities within 23 provinces of Afghanistan for last seventeen years. NECDO firmly believes that it is better to light a candle, instead of cursing the darkness because the one-lighted candle will be in position to light a few more around and this way we will get rid of the darkness and conflicts. This commitment and dedication made us to be a well-known and active NNGO not only locally but also internationally. The commitment and professionalism pioneer us to be a role model for coming generations and foster to pave the way for a better tomorrow.

NECDO is a woman support organization working for women empowerment and enabling youth to initiate endeavors promoting sustainable peace and elimination of violence through education, capacity building, Gender Equality, community mobilization, advocacy, and Humanitarian Assistance.
