Transforming Thousands of Lives Through Afghanistan’s National Solidarity Programme

  • 0

Between 2003 and 2016, the National Solidarity Programme (NSP) provided block grants for over 3,000 development projects in Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar Province. Over 1,952 Community Development Councils (CDCs) have been elected to decide on their respective community needs as well as to oversee and monitor project implementation. With support provided by the World Bank, the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund and other donors, NSP ensured citizen engagement and meaningful development with decisions being made at the grassroots level. It brought communities closer, one project at a time. TRANSCRIPT The National Solidarity Programme (NSP) was launched in the Kandahar Province in southern Afghanistan in 2003. NSP was implemented in 16 out of 17 districts in Kandahar and has had a fundamental systemic impact in these districts. When a project is implemented based on the needs and want of the people, then the people themselves take care of it and monitor it. All projects, old and new, that have been supported by NSP have been successfully implemented, and people have benefited from them. NSP established 1,952 Community Development Councils (CDCs) in Kandahar. They enabled people to work together and achieve common development goals. Previously the rain and subsequent flooding would ruin houses. But after the drainage system was built, this problem has been resolved and the rainwater goes into the drainage system. The CDCs implemented over 3,000 projects, which ranged from improving access to drinking water to building civic infrastructure, such as roads, schools, health centers, and bridges. Thank God! After the construction of the bridge, the residents of the three villages have benefited from it, and they are very happy and satisfied with the project. In the past, children would use the wooden bridge to cross from one side of the river to the other. This was a big concern for us, but after the construction of this bridge, they can cross safely. In Kandahar, NSP had visibly transformed the lives of over 356,000 families. With support provided by the World Bank, the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund and other donors, NSP ensured citizen engagement and meaningful development as well as built decision-making capacity at the grassroots. It brought communities closer, one project at a time.
