While listening to local or international media, or to be around, one can realize the grave challenges Afghans face due to protracted conflict, violence in all harshest forms, and weak and corrupt governance. A complex interaction and a vicious cycle between violent actors and power brokers at every level is developed which has put the basic human rights of Afghans in jeopardy.

 We are the witness of harsh violence against women in both capital Kabul and around the country. Women are harassed on daily basis inside and outside their homes. Forced and early marriages, harassment at public offices, on streets, and domestic violence are the norms of the day, unfortunately.

 Afghans living in poverty and illiteracy are more prone to violence and spoilage. Chronic poverty in Afghanistan, where more than 80% people lives below the poverty line is another challenge for our society. How to eradicate poverty and illiteracy, empower women, both politically and economically, is a challenge that we need to address then on sustainable manner. Also we must know the fact that any development without women participation is not sustainable and will not convert to culture. The active participation of women is pivotal for the sustainable development of our society.

 Equitable recovery and development, sense of philanthropy, volunteerism, and tolerance are the lessons we need to learn and act upon. I have also emphasized time and again that the culture of philanthropy within CSOs and among Afghans need to be introduced. This should be our collective responsibility to tolerate, educate and protect each other.

 HRRAC has been is involved in advocating for the promotion of human rights, including women and children rights, status of labors, and sustainable equitable development. We have come a long way but we are not at the right place. We need to look forward, join hands and work collectively to make Afghanistan a better place for our youth, women and children to live peacefully with their families, friends and neighbors. They need our support, and if we try, we can make it.

 Beside our individual and collective efforts, a more coordinated partnership between CSOs including Media and CSOs, government and international organizations is required. Afghanistan still needs the proper and long term Engagement and commitment of donors for a self-reliant Afghan society. Similarly, CSOs like HRRAC must work in tough environments and with or without external financial support.
