For the annual international campaign "16 Days of Activism" against gender-based violence, the United Nations once again called to "Orange the world". From November 25 to December 10, the challenge was to fill the funding gap and to collect the data necessary to adapt and improve support services provided to women and girls. Through the slogan "Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!", various issues were addressed throughout this campaign by humanitarian and development actors. As the 16 Days of Activism is today coming to an end, Action for Development asks: what do we know about gender-based violence in Afghanistan?
Afghanistan experienced its first snowfall of the year, today, in Mazar-e-Sharif. Colder weather is expected to hit the country between January and February 2021.
Under the no-cost extension of the SUN Pooled Fund Project Afghanistan, Action for Development (AfD) developed a project to train CHWs in Family MUAC in 5 provinces in Afghanistan – Panjsher, Kabul, Dykundi, Bamyan, Jawzjan – selecting several districts in each province where training in Family MUAC will be provided to caregivers and female Community health workers (CHWs)
Right now, people around the globe are coming together: showing kindness and generosity by giving their voices, time, money, goods, and more to support communities and causes.Action for Development has joined the #GivingTuesday campaign with 2 projects...DONATE NOW!!!!
On Thursday 19 November, AfD's trainers conducted a training session on the 'Family MUAC' in Kabul, as part of the training of Community Health Workers carried out between October and November 2020, as extension of the SUN Pooled Fund.
