About Organization – Bureau for Rights Based Development (BRD)
Established in 2002, and previously known as the Bureau for Reconstruction and Development, the Bureau for Rights-Based Development (BRD) is a registered Afghan non-profit, non-governmental development organization that aims to implement and promote rights-based development for a strong, viable, and pluralistic society in Afghanistan.
BRD’s vision is of an Afghanistan where the entire population lives with improved livelihood, social justice, integrity and prosperity. Where human rights and rights of women are recognized, upheld, and respected. Where citizens have an active role in determining the values, direction, and governance of their communities and country, for the benefit of all.
The human rights-based approach to poverty eradication and development lies at the very heart of BRD’s work, which aims to encourage and support beneficiaries to switch from a passive role to the active role of right holders, taking responsibility for their own development. This is fully applicable in the context of this e-Academy as we are committed to working with our clients to ensure that our approach is compatible in the local context and meets their objectives.
BRD is working in the area of human rights, community development, social protection, environment, climate change, preservation of culture heritage, promoting good governance, accountability, peace building, conflict management and advocacy, through training, mentorship to build capacity of civil society, community based organization, university students, teacher, community leaders, youth and women in Afghanistan.
