The objective of the National Solidarity Programme is to lay the foundation for a sustainable form of inclusive local governance, rural reconstruction, and poverty alleviation. The NSP can be best measured by the impact the programme has on communities and individuals in rural Afghanistan. In the final analysis it is through their efforts and their contributions and guidance of their own community-led projects that the NSP programme as a whole will succeed.
"As of December 2007, the community mobilization activities of the National Solidarity Programme have positively impacted more than 13 million people in rural Afghanistan ."
Stories of their success help illustrate and validate the ongoing commitment and support that rural residents and the international community give to the NSP and to its efforts to alleviate local poverty and build infrastructure and development in Afghanistan.
Here are but a few of their success stories.
