DAARTT (Danish Assistance to Afghan Rehabilitation and Technical Training) was founded by the Danish People’s Aid (DPA) in 2003, with the aim to build schools and provide technical on-the-job training in Afghanistan.

DAARTT is specialized in construction and in building capacity in all aspects of construction. Its core staff consists of highly experienced Afghan engineers and architects. In addition, DAARTT is able to draw on a network of international experts.

Originally DAARTT was part of a DPA co-owned NGO in Afghanistan, the Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees (DACAAR), commencing operation in 1989 as DACAAR’s Buildings Department.

With support from key development partners such as DANIDA, the European Union, Norway, UNODC, UNHCR, Danish Refugee Council, the Afghan Ministry of Education, and private donors, DAARTT has:

  • constructed more than 150 schools, clinics, dormitories, justice and other buildings in Afghanistan
  • renovated more than 50 schools
  • produced and distributed more than 100,000 pre-fabricated elements for shelters
  • monitored more than 100 construction projects for donors
  • trained and provided numerous people from local communities with technical skills
  • mobilized and built capacity of more than 140 Afghan communities
  • built capacity of central and provincial government authorities for management of school construction projects.

Over its many years of operation DAARTT has carried out activities in almost all provinces of Afghanistan.
