Request For Project evaluation

About Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe, Afghanistan:


“Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe” is a German non-governmental charity-organization duly registered with the courts of law in Germany and in several host countries, such as Afghanistan. It was founded in 1981 by concerned Members of Parliament of all parties represented in the German Parliament. Help started providing humanitarian assistance for Afghan refugees in Pakistan, and soon extended to development-oriented activities. Help provides aid and development-support regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, creed or nationality. Priorities are set on the basis of need and upon the request from partners and vulnerable communities to cooperate fairly and transparently. Help is engaged both in emergency- and in development-programs. Whenever possible, Help links emergency-aid with assistance for self-help. It is our aim to encourage the efforts of communities affected by disasters and political upheaval, while strengthening their capability to improve their living conditions and long-term perspectives.

Help is commissioning an independent final evaluation of the project “Reintegration of Most Vulnerable Children including children on the move and emergency affected children through provision of TVET and Employment Facilitation”. The project is funded by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), WFP and ADH. The project started on 14th of October 2019 and will end on 13th of Feb 2022. The project is implemented by Help and Help’s local partner, Organization for Sustainable Aid in Afghanistan (OSAA).
