The 30-month “Supporting Access to Justice in Afghanistan” (SAJA) Program aims to improve access to justice in four main areas: legal aid, prosecution of crimes of violence against women, the effectiveness of Women’s Protection Centers and public legal awareness. This Program builds on the achievements of previous programs implemented by IDLO in Afghanistan, particularly the INL-funded IDLO National Justice Sector Strategy (NJSS) Program.
Under the IDLO implemented NJSS program, legal aid providers and government institutions identified the need for further capacity building support for legal aid providers, as well as improved coordination among legal aid actors. To address these needs, the SAJA legal aid component seeks to facilitate the creation of a network of legal aid NGOs and to provide technical assistance to improve legal aid skills and services.
Building on the work of previous IDLO programs, the SAJA gender justice components focus on supporting and strengthening the capacity of both the Elimination of Violence against Women (EVAW) units, established within the Attorney General’s Office, and Women’s Protection Centers (WPCs). In collaboration with these gender justice partners, the IDLO SAJA team works to build their technical and management capacity to improve the quality of care and services received by women and children seeking support.
In the 2011 National Legal Awareness Strategy of Afghanistan, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) noted that most Afghans have insufficient knowledge of legal issues and have not benefited from their rights guaranteed by the Constitution. For this reason, the final SAJA component addresses public legal awareness, as it is necessary to strengthen justice services and to increase citizen’s awareness of their rights and how to access to justice.

All interested applicants are encouraged to apply via our website and submit updated Resume or IDLO personal history form (PHF) and a cover letter.
