Women’s welfare NGOs accused of corruption

Women’s Affair Director Anisa Imrani alleged that a number of women’s welfare NGOs operating in eastern Nangarhar province are misappropriating donor funds.

She said the NGOs are operating without coordination with the Women’s Affair Department, allowing them a leeway to embezzle funds.

“We are, however, monitoring their work and will expose their corruption. This is unacceptable to us,” she said.

Meanwhile, Najia, a woman from Jalalabad, criticized the women’s affairs department for inviting their favourites to workshops and seminars.

Relatives of the department’s employees were the beneficiaries of the government’s coupon system, which was launched three months ago in the province. Deserving women had been deprived of the facility, she charged.

Imrani acknowledged the distribution of coupons to the employees, saying they were more deserving than others.
