Activities and number of children, youth and adults reached in Afghanistan

Activities and numbers
The growing number of children, youth and communities reached is a result of:

  1. The merging of three separate programmes into one. As a result, a smaller staff was needed and the money thus saved was spent on building new partnerships with communities that had thus far not been included in our programmes;
  2. Successful co-operation relations with our partners at the Ministry and in the communities, speeding up the ministerial project approval process;
  3. The fact that communities have a growing sense of ownership of the projects and are more enthusiastic. More children now participate in our activities.

War Child expanded its physical education programme to include several communities and a group of urban working children. These target groups were previously reached through separate projects. The programme is now organised more efficiently and reaches considerably more children, youth and communities than initially planned - both directly and indirectly.
