To broaden the impact of AKDN civil society activities, the Civil Society
Programme -- previously a focus area of the Aga Khan Foundation -- has now
been formally extended to encompass all the AKDN agencies. The scope of
the programme has also been widened in order to increase the positive impact
of a wide array of organisations that have a presence in public life.
In Afghanistan, AKDN is a facilitating partner of the Government’s National Solidarity Programme (NSP). Under the NSP, AKDN assists villages in establishing village-based Community Development Councils, electing an accountable and transparent Council leadership, formulating village development plans, and prioritising village needs.
