About this website: Nai created the “Front Page” as a one-stop platform for elections-focused civil society organizations (CSOs) to increase awareness of their activities, while simultaneously providing access to elections-specific information and organizational learning resources – thus improving the ability of civil society to act as advocates of democracy and good governance in Afghanistan.
Giving voice to civil society: Civil society organizations can register on the website by creating profiles, updating their activities, and amplifying their advocacy efforts on elections themes and issues across Nai’s extensive network of media organizations, outlets, and journalists in Afghanistan. For more information, visit the CSO Profile page to register your organization or update your profile.
Organizational learning: The website also contains free organizational development resources for civil society organizations. This includes a range of advocacy and media-focused tool-kits, organizational learning tools and much more. For more information, visit the CSO Resources page.
Access to elections information: The website contains interactive features that allow civil society organizations and individuals to sign up for elections news alerts via email or SMS. Stay informed! To learn more, visit the News Alerts page.
