Panjab Cooperation Society (PCS) is a non-government; non-profitable public Youths organization. Given the social problems and challenges, a group of youths joined their hands to constitute an association named as “Panjab Cooperation Society – PCS” in Kabul, 2007. The organization’s establishment dates back to the mid-2007 by a group of youths withstanding totalitarianism, dictatorship in educational institutions, i.e. university and schools and corruption in the governmental organizations. In the period of two years during which the initial activities were completed successfully, this organization acceded to most of its goals and objectives and in the same period, it entailed noteworthy changes in the educational system either of school or university nature. Basically, the founders of this organization launched their activities voluntarily and at their own expenses. Achievements’ resulting from this organization prompted the key founders to register the organization with the Ministry of Justice by the end of 2007.
The main objective of PCS is to contribute to the rehabilitation and reconstruction process of the country, to provide relief to the marginalized individuals and communities. PCS is implementing different projects including Rights Awareness, Peace Mediation, Education and Capacity Building, Access to Justice, Business Development Services, Income Generation and Campaign for Clean and Green Environment
PCS is an effective organization in raising awareness surrounding violence against women, anti corruption, child rights, campaigning for green and clean environment and anti-narcotic measures. It will remain committed in implementing projects to create awareness about human rights/child rights and to eliminate violence against women in the society.
