Organisation Description

OSCAR is an NGO and its main area of focus is teaching nonviolence in Afghanistan and working for the rights of children and women. The organization is a flagship and pioneer of teaching nonviolence in Afghanistan. The philosophy of teaching nonviolence is to educate the target groups that conflict is a natural phenomenon and we need to deal with it in a logical and rational way, which is nonviolence. We teach our target groups that they are the actual change in the society. If they want to make changes in the system or their environment, they need to become that change themselves.

Our strategy towards ending violence against children is to educate youths, civil society activists and teachers in the negative consequences of violence against children and justify fair treatment of children on the basis of culture. We mainly conduct short term workshops and discussion about the negative consequences of violence against children and its impact on the future of children and the society. We also raise awareness to prevent vulnerable children from joining insurgency and extreme groups.
