Checchi Awarded New Task Order in Afghanistan
In April 2016, Checchi Consulting was awarded a five-year task order by USAID/Afghanistan to implement the Assistance for the Development of Afghan Legal Access and Transparency (ADALAT) Project. Through ADALAT, USAID/Afghanistan seeks to improve the quality of legal services for all Afghan citizens. Checchi will work with formal judicial institutions, including the Afghan Supreme Court and Afghanistan Independent Bar Association, to improve the quality of professional training and legal education for judges and lawyers. In addition, Checchi will help build systems for better operational management in the formal justice sector, as well as develop greater links between the formal and informal justice systems. Finally, Checchi will work with a variety of civil society organizations to improve citizens’ awareness of their legal rights and resources through public outreach and education activities.
