Introduction

The organization was created in 1987 by a team of educated and experienced Afghan volunteers. Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance (CHA) is a non-profit, non-sectarian and non-political humanitarian organization. CHA is registered with Ministry of Economy in Afghanistan. The General Assembly of CHA is the highest authority to set or dissolve the policy lines. The Assembly has the authority to decide on CHA’s progress, or to change or dissolve the organization. Members comprise a directorial board of cooperative organizations, community representatives and members of CHA elected by the Executive Board.

CHA works through the main thematic areas of Education, Community Development, Health & Nutrition, Agriculture & Livestock and Disaster Management and Repatriation Affairs.

PoC: CHA will enable the ground for humanitarian, development, and peace opportunities in rural and urban communities where all groups engaged will have equal participation rights and equal value for their contribution. The term “inclusive” will be considered as proactive rather than passive. People of Concern for CHA are; Returnees and IDPs, Women, Children, Youth, People with disabilities, and Kuchis and Nomads.

CHA has well developed policies and procedures in practice which makes it as a model national organization in Afghanistan. These policies are being revised annually in order to be on track with the latest changes in the context of the country.

CHA is accountable to its partners and communities through periodic and annual progress and financial reports and regular evaluation of its activities. An online Enterprise Resource Planning system is utilized within all departments of the organization to facilitate further transparency and accountability. External auditors carry out general annual audit of CHA accounts. CHA is also using an internal audit process for project accounts in accordance with international rules and practices.
