About The Liaison Office:

Founded in 2003, The Liaison Office (TLO) is an Afghan non-governmental organization (NGO) that emerged from a Swiss peace pilot project (supported by the Heinrich Böll Stiftung) on good governance after the organization was approached by southeastern province community elders requesting assistance for participation in the peace and reconstruction process. TLO has since evolved into an independent Afghan NGO registered under number 611 with the Ministry of Economy of Afghanistan. MISSION: T o f a c ilit a t e t h e f o r m a l i n t e g r a ti o n o f c o m m u n iti e s a n d t h e i r t r a d iti o n a l g o v e r n a n c e structures within Afghanistan’s newly emerging peace, governance and reconstruction framework. OBJECTIVES: The organization’s main objectives are to improve local governance, stability and security through systematic and institutionalized engagement with customary structures, local communities, and civil society groups. It works to accomplish these objectives through programmatic activities in research/analysis, dialogue facilitation/peace building, access to justice and governance, humanitarian assistance, third party monitoring and evaluation of the project/programs, and natural resources management. The guidelines for these activities are strictly based on the “do-no harm” approach.
