In 1996, Female Rehabilitation and Development Organization (FRDO) started its first operation with a professional team of young Afghan citizens in Pakistan and Afghanistan in order to support Afghan refugees. Since that time, we have continued to play a remarkable role in the support of humanitarian and country’s development. We provide required services and support in 222 districts under 18 provinces and due to internal conflicts and existence of armed groups hard to reach communities and villages in most of the provinces.
With support from international donors, Female Rehabilitation and Development Organization (FRDO) implemented different projects related to the education, health, income generation, awareness raising, capacity building, emergency and natural disaster, livestock, human and legal rights awareness and construction of poly clinics and schools for over 140,000 male and female beneficiaries across Afghanistan and Pakistan which almost 95 percent of the projects were implemented in Afghanistan.
According to the scope of the programmes and projects, we work with government ministries, provincial governors, government line directorates, CDCs, DDAs, community representatives, national and international donors to assist the government of Afghanistan in improving living condition of deprived communities especially for Afghan women and girls.
We support emergencies and natural disaster projects in partnership with the UN-WFP, Ministry of Refugees and Returnees, and Office of State Minister for Disaster Management to provide shelter, food and cash to affected population. We work with Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled (MoLSAMD) to conduct vocational skills training to vulnerable female beneficiaries in order to improve their access to income. We work with Ministry of Women Affairs of Afghanistan to conduct gender equality, preventing domestic violence, elimination of violence against women, and human and legal rights awareness raising projects for needy and affected women of Afghanistan in order to raise their awareness and bring peace in their lives.
