DACAAR is a development non-governmental organisation which works towards sustainable livelihoods in rural Afghanistan including the lasting return of refugees and internally displaced people.
DACAAR works at village level in close cooperation with the local population in order to enable them to meet basic needs and secure improved livelihoods. At the national level, DACAAR is actively involved in nation building with the Government of Afghanistan.
DACAAR was established in 1984 specifically to provide support and relief to Afghan refugees in Pakistan. In 1989, DACAAR started activities in Afghanistan where the organisation is now concentrating on rehabilitation and long-term development work.
