In view of the wide-spread corruption and lack of transparency and accountability in the government, and private sector the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) decided to establish a coalition against corruption at a large meeting held on 25 February 2012 at the Afghan NGOs Coordination Bureau (ANCB) office located in Kabul. Following this meeting, the coalition was formally launched on 29 March 2012 in Kabul. In the launching ceremony, a number of CSO representatives, parliamentarians and government officials were present.
The coalition was named the “Afghanistan CSOs Coalition against Corruption” (AFCAC). Later on AFCAC was registered in the Ministry of Economy as an independent Legal Entity with a new name “Afghans Coordination Against Corruption’. The CSOs, youth, media, parliamentarians, influential Individuals, students and teachers can and should play a vital role in fighting corruption at the government as well community levels, foster good governance, and ensure the inclusion of groups from marginalized or underrepresented communities including poor families, the rural population, women and the youth so that their voices are heard.
AFCAC will aim to foster positive change and contribute to a more comprehensive, coherent and inclusive fight against corruption in Afghanistan. AFCAC will foster national dialogue, mobilize civil society for anti-corruption campaigns, and promote partnership building among anticorruption stakeholders in order to influence national level policies aimed at creating a new Afghanistan that has the needs and priorities of the population at heart.
“AFCAC envisions a transparent, accountable, democratic and prosperous Afghanistan based on social justice and the rule of law.”
“A strong, committed and coordinated coalition of all non-state actors advocating democratic governance, accountability and transparency in all spheres of governmental and non-governmental activity”
