Legal Service Provision for Victims of Violence:

Violence against women and girls is usually happening in Afghanistan and remain un-reported to legal and judiciary institutions due to political, cultural and social believes and behaviors. Unfortunately, the government and relevant authorities are not fulfilling their responsibilities toward this critical issue.

Therefore, VGVN has established a network of female lawyers and legal specialists in central (Kabul, Ghor, Bamyan, Daikundi, and Maidan Wardak) provinces of Afghanistan to provide legal services for victims of violence. The legal services contain charging of official cases, filing cases in courts, provision of legal counseling to victims of violence, follow-up and processing of cases in courts, referral support services, save house and shelter support services and other legal assistance support services.
