Who can become a member of SRMO?

SRMO is seeking to build a network of local Afghan-led NGOs, civil society members and Afghan human rights activists who are working to promote and protect human rights or provide humanitarian services by peaceful and non-violent means. A Member can be any local NGO or an activist who is involved in humanitarian work, civil society or human rights work and is NOT part of or affiliated with any partisan or political organization.

Why become SRMO member: By becoming a SRMO member you will have the opportunity of becoming part of a nationwide Afghan NGO and human rights defenders protection network (this is currently at early stages of developing). Through this network, we will work together to provide risk mitigation solutions to Afghan-led NGOs and human rights defenders at risk in Afghanistan.

Membership is free!

What SRMO can do for its Members:

      • Will keep you informed about SRMOs events and activities;
      • Will provide you with information in Dari and Pashto languages about developments that may affect your security in the provinces of your operations and provide you with risk mitigation advice;
      • Will provide you with protection, based on our assessment, if you suffer serious abuse or are at immediate risk due to your human rights work;

Roles of Members:

      • Will support SRMO’s mission by different activities as agreed;
      • Will participate (if available) in regular meetings to discuss emerging threats and risks to human rights activists and local NGOs and civil society organizations in the provinces of Afghanistan and for discussing/adopting risk mitigation strategies;
