WELCOME TO THE TAJIKISTAN NATIONAL NGO ASSOCIATION PORTAL!
For the last 18 years since the independence of Tajikistan, the socio-political situation in the country has changed radically. One of the main achievements during the years of national independence has been the increasing distribution of democratic freedoms and the occurrence of the first structures of civil society and democratic government. The freedom of speech and press, pluralism and multi-party system, and different forms of nongovernmental associations are some of the examples. The issue of formation and further improvement of non-governmental organizations, as one of the effective fundamental principles and structures of new time, and the role of NGO’s in the construction, strengthening civil society and democratic government has a special importance at this period of time in our country.
It is significant to know that the number of non-governmental organizations have been growing in Tajikistan every day and that should be considered a positive phenomenon. Actually, today, there is no branch, where representatives of NGO’s would not participate in the solution of arisen problems. The contribution of non-governmental organizations, in particular in retraining and increase of legal, socio-political and cultural enlightenment of citizens is very significant. The first modern centers of retraining, work with women and children, invalids, creation of the first small commercial and noncommercial organizations, cooperation in the sphere of public health services and education, increase of the level of legal culture of citizens, creation of conditions of the first material and monetary aid and the training centers for new generation of businessmen, organization of short-term special courses by applying modern facilities for state employees, creation of opportunities and new workplaces for youth and housewives is only a partial list of activities, which the non-governmental organizations of Tajikistan have been dealing with for the last few years.
Creation of a national portal and granting its use to a wide range of non-governmental organizations is the concrete measure for promoting professional and steady development of the structures all over the country. The project is worked out based on the decision and the offer of the first National Forum of non-governmental organizations of Tajikistan, held in Dushanbe, in May 2008. Its objective is to provide assistance to professional development structures of the civil society, regulation of their activities and association of all creative forces in development and prosperity of Tajikistan and the well being of the country’s inhabitants.
