I am Zahra hasanpur I-PACS Manager in Women Activities & Social Services Association (WASSA) in Herat Province of Afghanistan. I am leading the I-PACS Program in the 5 provinces of Western zone. Since 2005 I and My team consisting one Training Officer, One Resource Center Officer and M&E Officer received more than 20 Capacity building trainings of I-PACS Program and have been provided with necessary technical assistance in different field of organizational policy development ( Finance/ Admin and HR policy) Organizational Strategic plan and Monitoring and evaluation. We successfully delivered what we learnt to the I-PACS targeted CSOs in western zone and enabled them to write their own proposals and raise fund for their activities.

What I have enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is the strong network of 205 Civil Society Organization from all around the Afghanistan which enabled them to advocate for residents rights and bring many positive changes in government’s policies, also they can take active part in the process of decision making for the future of Afghanistan.

Ways to make it better...

My experience would have been better if we are supported financially and technically by other funding resources in Afghanistan to put what we learned into practice. We welcome the new initiatives to build the ruined fundamentals of Afghanistan.
