Introducing The Afghan NGO SALEHO... Continuing The Partnership

SALEHO Leading The BBS Adult Literacy Program
SALEHO Leading The BBS Adult Literacy Program

When BBS started the project on GlobalGiving called Small Acts of Kindness, it was to highlight some of the projects we support and equally the incredible local non-profit partners that we work with globally.

In this update, we’d like to introduce you further to our Afghan partner SALEHO.

Shortly work on the first women's centre will begin as we are close to reaching the necessary funding target and we're delighted to continue working with our dear friends at SALEHO. 

SALEHO (Strengthen Agriculture, Livelihood, Environment and Hygiene Organisation) operates primarily in the Zebak, Ishkashim and Wakhan districts of Badakhshan. They are a local NGO and registered with the Ministry of Economy since 2015.  Their goal and objective are to "empower women and girls in rural Afghanistan and strengthen women's roles in social and economic lives by facilitating livelihood opportunities."

BBS first started working with SALEHO in late 2018 when they delivered our adult literacy program in six villages in the Wakhan Corridor.  Their role included conducting the Master Training sessions for the chosen local facilitators, serving as coaches to the trainers through in-class observation sessions, and measuring program effectiveness.

SALEHO's professionalism and expertise to deliver high quality training programs coupled with their systems to measure impact will ensure we're again able to achieve all deliverables on time and budget.

While SALEHO will take the lead regarding program delivery, the UN Mission in Badakhshan will continue to act as the interface with the local authorities who have signed off on all plans and project deliverables.

The first centre will be opened in the Zebak district and will feature a library with capacity of 150 printed books and some audio resources that will provide female university graduates access to learning materials. The learning center will also serve as the "host" for workshops and information sessions under the life skills category and all of these will be delivered by SALEHO. When this library opens, it will be the seventh SALEHO has completed for our donors.

With so much happening in the world today, we want to thank everyone for their kind donations to this project and the hope it will bring girls and women in Afghanistan.  We're excited and confident that with the efforts of our partners, the UN Mission and SALEHO, that we will create a centre the brings tremendous value to all those that it will serve.

Thank you again and best wishes.
