About us!

About Us:

Roshna Social Organization was founded in 2015 to represent and respond to issues of special significance to areas of educational, social and legal communities. Concerned that needs within these communities were not being adequately addressed, a group of community volunteers and university students came together to call for an organization that would raise public and target needs within Afghanistan communities.

Since its founding, Roshna Social Organization (RSO) has been dedicated to creating strong, healthy, and economically viable communities in order to create a better life, especially for young generation, children, university students and families.  Over the years, RSO has become a respected convener, advocate and public awareness platform addressing issues such as: constitutional rights, family preservation, legal awareness, health promotion, youth development, community revitalization and economic empowerment.

VISION STATEMENT

What do we really want to accomplish and what is our aim? Afghan community has gone through a lot of hardships and decades of war, which led the country stay back warded for a very long period. This has affected its population negatively in many aspects, such as, education, civilization, political and social development, and economical development. The main reason these citizens were suspended from their rights is the decades of war. RSO goal as a newly developed social organization in Afghanistan is to put an end to such arising issues and once again inspire to youth to pull out their sleeves and work for the development of the nation.

We have very accomplished and brilliant individuals in the society but they do not use their knowledge in the right direction because they were never encouraged and told about their abilities. The nation is currently going through a lot of difficult situations and to avoid all these undesirable outcomes and incidents; we need strong government support and coordination of the people, especially the young individuals who will be fully committed to help us in our journey.

Another objective that our team has and we value it in our organization is to end negative mentalities that citizens have been following for a very long time and those mentalities has still kept many away from development. For instances, preventing women to be employed, not allowing them to join school and colleges in their adulthood, early marriages and also not giving them their rights. RSO will aware the citizens through media and campaigns and any other channels and taking actions in accordance with the laws of Afghanistan and not violating the rules and regulations. We will be a voice, a channel and way for the development in Afghanistan.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe secure, productive and just societies emerge when the private, public, and civil society sectors are able to interact with accountability, inclusive participation and mechanisms for peaceful change.
