Detail: NAC was established in Norway in 1980 in response to the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan. Local committees in Norway immediately rallied public opinion against the invasion, promoted solidarity with the Afghan people and conducted fundraising campaigns to assist the growing number of Afghans caught in the middle of the conflict. In 1983 NAC opened its first office in Peshawar, Pakistan, followed by a field office in Ghazni province in 1986 and in Keshem, Badakhshan province in 1991. In 1997 a liaison office was opened in Kabul which later, in 2002, became NAC’s Country Office. The history of NAC shows that the solidarity and commitment of NAC towards the Afghan people, lasting for over 30 years, is not dependent on specific political causes or limited to specific aid areas. We have evolved from a solidarity organization into a professional relief and development NGO where solidarity with the Afghan people still lies in the heart of all our work plans and strategies. We work closely with beneficiary communities in order to develop the best strategies and programs and to ensure effective implementation.

Right to Play
Type: International NGO
Country: Global
Theme: Child-to-child Early childhood Parents, families and communities Teacher education Refugees, conflict, emergencies Health
Detail: Play is NOT a luxury. While food, water and shelter are essential, so is a childhood, complete with education and opportunities to actively engage with other children. There are areas of the world today where children are not able to experience the benefits of play–this is the problem that we must tackle. We use the power of play to educate and empower children to be guardians of their own health and active participants in their communities.
