Our Vision, Mission and Values


Vision
Women and men in rural Afghan communities are effectively and in a sustainable way managing local resources in a constant improvement of livelihoods. As part of a strong civil society and with support from governmental institutions and local community organisations, individual men and women have access to knowledge, education, training and social services and are able to effectively improve quality of life and to withstand periods of calamity and stress.

Mission
DACAAR is a Danish non-governmental, development/humanitarian organisation that supports sustainable development in Afghanistan through the ability of local communities to decide upon and manage their own development process.

Activities are implemented in cooperation with civil society organisations, the private sector and governmental institutions with a particular emphasis on poverty eradication and assistance towards the return and reintegration of returnees and internally displaced people.

Values
Efficiency, Honesty, Participation, Equity, Quality, Transparency and Anti-Corruption
