Citizens’ Charter 

AHDS is involved in facilitation of the Citizens’ Charter National Priority Program (CCNPP) in Afghanistan. The objective of CCNPP is to improve the delivery of core infrastructure and social services to participating communities through strengthened Community Development Councils (CDCs). The program is a whole-of-government effort to end fragmentation, bring people together to collectively address their development needs and contribute towards unity. The Charter is a commitment to provide every village and urban communities in Afghanistan with basic services, based on community prioritization.

A three years’ contract for Citizen’s Charter National Priority Program/ Citizens’ Charter Afghanistan Project (CCNPP/ CCAP); CCAP-I/MRRD/CS/FP-1 was made on the 16 May 2017, between the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, Afghanistan (MRRD) and AHDS & SDO Joint Venture for package#1.
