Headquartered in Kabul, Afghanistan, Afghanistan’s New Generation is an independent, nonprofit organization that empowers the Afghan youth to create community change at grassroots level. We equip the Afghan youth and their adult allies with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to take a stand in their communities and create change that will positively impact their future as they begin to take power from an older generation preoccupied with tackling political violence and forced into negotiating survival in a war economy. The promises and the challenges of the future and the emergence of Afghan forms of modernity appropriate to the aspirations of the Afghan people lie at the center of ANGO’s interest and interventions.
ANGO aims to empower the youth to become competent community advocates by providing training in such areas as public speaking, media literacy, use of information technology, community assessment, mobilizing community support and working with policy makers, elected representatives, local and provincial, secular and religious councils to make the decision making processes more inclusive.
ANGO provides training and support so that our partners gain a heightened awareness about their issues of interest and learn how to identify and take advantage of opportunities to engage in local, national and international advocacy work.
Additionally, ANGO provides support to adults and organizations by offering training, capacity building exchange programs and technical assistance so that they may be better allies to empowered youth. We provide networking opportunity, encourage partnerships and assess organizations’ youth empowerment capacity.
Vision and Mission
We envision an Afghanistan that is free of political and social insecurity. Our mission is to empower Afghanistan’s new generation to be active participants and effective communicators in making the future of Afghanistan as a peaceful, prosperous and democratic country.
