More than a quarter century of conflict compounded by repeated natural disasters has left Afghanistan as one of the poorest countries in the world. According to the National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (NRVA) for 2007-2008, the poverty rate in rural areas is 36% and 45% of rural populations do not meet minimum food requirements. With over 75% of the Afghan population living in rural areas, rural development is therefore seen as a crucial sector for the development and stability of the country.

For several years, USAID has provided funding for activities in Afghanistan by contracting directly with mostly US contractors for goods and services. USAID has decided to change this approach. The new approach is to provide funding directly to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) for which GIRoA will implement activities directly, or else GIRoA will contract for goods and services directly. This funding arrangement is referred to as â€śon-budgetâ€ť, i.e. it is included with the GIRoA official development budget.
USAID has recently agreed to provide â€śon-budgetâ€ť funding to the Afghan Ministry of Education (MOE). In 2013, USAID brought on-budget its community-based education (CBE) program into the MOE under the General Education Directorate. In support of the CBE program, USAID is providing capacity building assistance to the General Education Directorate to build its CBE Unit which currently has no staff under the Tashkeel. The purpose of this position is to provide administrative support to the CBE unit.
