A work of exchange and reflection
During the meetings of the General Assembly, of the Board of Directors and of the Board of the association, a thoughtful work of consideration and sharing of experiences made it possible to identify the main priorities for action to be carried out in the field:
- Support local development, village organizations and carry communities towards autonomy.
- Give priority to a participatory approach, in which the communities are stakeholders and intervene in the definition of the actions and in their implementation. The approach should also be an "integrated" approach, taking into account all the needs of the concerned population in the different areas of life (food, health, education, etc.).
- Favor in-house promotion of Afghan personnel.
Awareness-raising actions in Europe
Exchanges of information and reflection, concerted advocacy strategies with the various actors working in Afghanistan are sought by developing links with European solidarity networks.
Several interventions and meetings are carried out with the initiative or participation of MADERA’s members, to sensitize different audiences to the situation in Afghanistan: in high schools, through conferences and at various public places.
The members plan or take part in the organization and the facilitation of occasional events of sensitization and support to the Afghan populations in the provinces and in Paris.
Field support missions
Regular field missions of members of the Board of Directors are held annually, on a voluntary basis, in the different regions where MADERA carries out its programs.
