“From the people, for the people, with the people”
The National Solidarity Programme (NSP) was a flagship programme of the Government of Afghanistan benefiting from more than $2.3 billion of donor funding. The programme had the goal of building peace and solidarity amongst the people and to empower them to be responsible for local level governance and development.
The formation of Community Development Councils (CDC’s in each village through a transparent election process lay at the heart of the programme. The CDC’s were empowered through a process of experiential learning to plan and undertake their own development work with the goal that they would be responsible for local level governance.
