Project Overview

The GAC EPAC project focuses on strengthening the local capacity of communities, parents, local partners, and legal actors to protect children and fulfill commitments to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, at both the local and national levels, in Nangarhar province. This Annual report covers progress in project implementation covering the period from April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021. During this reporting period, the Organization of Human Welfare (OHW) continued to build the capacity of parents, community members including Community Based Child Protection Mechanism (CBCPM) members, Community volunteer educators, religious leaders, and ministries to further strengthen child protection mechanisms at home, communities, and schools; and support the physical, cognitive and social development of 3222 children (1749 F; 1473 M) at 32 Child-Friendly Spaces (CFSs). But the CFS program has changed for year 4 of the project, therefore the EPAC project team had regular field visits to update the structure for self-learning methods, that each facilitator should follow the door to door policy because of COVID-19, hence all 128 Facilitators are kept informed on the project concept and self-learning methods, they are used to work for child rights of their respected community and developed the plan for their field visits.

But due to community and cultural problems some people do not allow their females to follow door to door policy.
During the reporting period of April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020, the key achievements were:

64 CBCPMs with 960 members (480 F; 480 M) continue to conduct active surveillance of child protection issues and implement responses. They continued to enhance the knowledge of parents, community leaders, religious leaders, and/or school headmasters and teachers on child rights and protection and supported CFSs and child-to-child facilitators; while the structure of CBCPM shuras has been changed based on the instruction of WCC, there was one CBCPM male shura of 15 members and one of 15 members shura from female with each CFS, but for year 4 of the project, the project team decreased it to 15 members which include to (7 female+7 male+1 Mullah of the related community)

So, the project team developed the CBCPM shuras of all targeted areas and oriented them on the project concept for year 4.
