About CRS:

CRS began direct operations in Afghanistan in early 2002. CRS maintains four main offices throughout the country: Kabul, Herat, Chaghcharan, and Bamiyan, with sub-offices in all of these provinces as well as Daikundi. The CRS strategic plan for Afghanistan focuses on poverty and risk reduction, human development and emergency response in rural areas in western and central Afghanistan. CRS works to support:

  • People, especially girls and women from marginalized communities, gain basic education.
  • Poor rural and peri-urban households to have increased livelihood security.
  • Vulnerable communities to survive shocks without long-term negative impact on their livelihoods.

Since 2006, CRS has implemented a model of Community Based Education (CBE) that partners with the Ministry of Education (MOE) and local community leaders to provide access to a quality education and establish a sustainable system of education for boys and girls in remote and marginalized areas. Currently, CRS implements CBE programming in four provinces in Afghanistan: Herat, Ghor, Bamiyan, and Daikundi.

CRS Ghor Office currently manages classes in Lal, Dawlat yar, Chaghcharan, Dulaina, Shahrak, Tulak and Saghar Districts of Ghor Province. This broad geographic coverage and the central role of the Government offices and community leaders in the implementation of CBE programming requires extensive and effective coordination between CRS, Government officials, and communities, as well as widespread collaborative monitoring to ensure coverage of all implementation areas.
