Swedish Committee for Afghanistan
Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SCA) has been present in Afghanistan since the beginning of the 1980s. With a total number around 5,700 staff, of whom 15 are non-Afghans, it is one of the largest organizations in the country. SCA presently manages development programmes linked to Strategic Objectives within Health, Education, Rural Livelihoods and Community Governance, with a total annual budget of roughly USD 40 million.
SCA operates in 14 provinces in Afghanistan and contributes to stability in an unstable country. The programmes are, to a vast majority, implemented in rural areas. In Sweden, SCA has around 22 staff at the office in Stockholm, and about 3,500 members in local chapters all over the country.
In Afghanistan, close to 90,000 children go to schools run by SCA. Over one and a half million people receive medical care yearly at clinics and hospitals run by the organization, while 3,000 children and adults with disabilities receive special education.
In the last decade, SCA has moved from a predominantly humanitarian approach towards more of a developmental role, putting increasing emphasis on capacity development and advocacy along with continued service delivery, working towards strengthening individuals, civil society organizations and counterpart government institutions.
All SCA programming is based on a Rights Based Approach, where both rights claimers and duty bearers are capacitated to strengthen the fulfillment of human rights. SCA emphasizes equal rights and opportunities for women.
SCA is a member-based aid and solidarity organization that works rights-based. We do opinion and advocacy work and fundraising. We work for and with the most vulnerable people in the Afghan countryside - women, girls, boys, people with disabilities as well as internally displaced people. SCA has over 6 000 Afghan employees. The programs are to the vast majority implemented in rural areas. SCA is operating in 14 of Afghanistan’s provinces. For more than 35 years we have been present among those in Afghanistan who need us most; despite war and conflict. We have decided to stay as long as we are needed.
