Assistance for Health, Education and Development (AHEAD) seeks to provide and promote the adoption and application of comprehensive and cohesive approaches for Capacity Building to build the capacity of the women and men of Afghanistan to harness and optimize existing capabilities and to strengthen the capacity of Afghan public and private institutions to deliver upon their mandates, in an accountable and transparent manner. AHEAD sees this as an important driver of the transformation process to promote equitable and resilient human development in Afghanistan.
Capacity development, especially in fragile contexts, is regarded as critical in the achievement of development goals. AHEAD focuses on capacity development as a key principle for implementing its programmatic areas i.e. Health, WASH, Peace, Justice, Rule of Law, and Livelihood. We have a track record of providing capacity building services to employees of the public sector, government employees, schools, universities, and individual organizations.
Over the past two decades, AHEAD has the honor to have provided capacity-building support to dozens of Afghan government institutions, over a thousand private sector entities, and tens of thousands of individuals. Furthermore, in partnership with our donors and strategic partners established hundreds of small and medium enterprises and placed over ten thousand Afghan youths in sustainable private-sector jobs.
