Aid in action: the National Solidarity Program

Posted by Peace Action West on June 28th, 2011

From our partners at Peace Action West

After seeing the destruction and devastation caused by the war in Afghanistan, and hearing countless stories of corruption amongst Afghan officials and private contractors, a lot of people want to know what, if any, effective tools we have to help Afghans.

The answer to that question lies in listening to Afghans, letting them lead the way in improving their communities and investing in small, sustainable projects. The National Solidarity Program (NSP), which gives grants to Community Development Councils so villagers can undertake their own development projects, does just that.

This helpful video from UKAid shows how the NSP process works, offering a window into the impact they’ve had on lives in Afghanistan, from improving access to water to building a community health clinic.
