The project will complement the ongoing INL projects in Herat, Kabul, Balkh, and Badakhshan that identify and protect children living in prison with their mothers in these provinces and the surrounding provinces.
Specifically, the project will seek to establish and institutionalize the CSCs in
Herat, Kabul, Balkh, and Badakhshan in coordination with OPA, the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (MOLSA), the Ministry of Education (MOE), and the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH).
INL currently funds four CSCs in Afghanistan.
The Herat CSC serves Herat, Farah, Nimroz, Ghor, and Badghis provinces.
The Kabul CSC serves Kabul, Parwan, Kapisa, Wardak, and Nangarhar provinces.
The Balkh CSC serves Balkh, Samangan, Faryab, Sar-e-Pul, and Jawzjan provinces.
The Badakhshan CSC serves Badakhshan, Kunduz, Baghlan, and Takhar provinces.
