JFAO works to strengthen the rule of law and expand access to justice for vulnerable populations in Afghanistan. In particular, JFAO aims to expand the provision of competent legal representation in criminal, civil, and family law cases to marginalized and underserved groups in Afghanistan, particularly the indigent, women, children, and prisoners. JFAO also works to increase awareness among women, children, and families about their legal rights. We also train and develop future women leaders within Afghanistan’s legal and political sectors.

Methodology

Our headquarters and sub-offices staff members collaborate on program design and implementation to pave the way for access to justice. Our headquarters, located in Kabul, oversees our sub-offices, trainings, workshops, publications, and other programs. In addition, our Kabul office serves as a Legal Aid Bureau that represents low-income women. Our sub-offices in Kabul, Kundoz, Khost, Badakshan and Takhar provinces directly provide free legal aid and legal advice, conduct Para-Legal training courses, legal workshops and seminars, and research legal issues (especially topics such as women’s and children’s legal rights), publish brochures and manuals, and advocate for the basic human rights of the poor and marginalized.

JFAO has sub-offices, along with available local trainers, in 15 provinces of Afghanistan. JFAO maintains strong links with several legal organizations and institutions in Afghanistan, including Global Rights, Medica Afghanistan, Organization for the Institute of Destitute Accused (OIDA), LAOA, Noor Educational and Capacity Development Organization, Afghan Women’s Network (AWN), Norwegian Refugee Council, AWSDC, APPRO, Women for Women, UNAMA, International Legal Foundation (ILF), Independent Defense Lawyers Association, All Afghan Women’s Union, and local radio stations, such Radio Hamsada in Takhar, Radio Setara in Balkh, Radio Kapisa , Radio Kyhan in Kundoz and Khawar TV channel in Kundoz.
