PEER COUNSELING THE AFGHAN WAY
In spring 2016, Danish Refugee Council (DRC) in Afghanistan had been innovating a new approach to providing legal aid and reducing gender-based and domestic violence among displaced families in Afghanistan. They call it Peer Counseling. Organizations including Tabesh, WAW, and others helped implement the project in Jalalabad and Herat. DRC then contracted HB founder Daniel J Gerstle, with support from the HB Afghan field team, namely Tamana Ayazi, to research and produce a field training manual, Peer Counseling the Afghan Way. The manual was translated into Dari and Pashto. We’ll provide a link here as soon as it is released publicly.
