Establishing TAGHEER “a personal story”
TAGHEER means “Change”, which was my dream to challenge the status-quo I observed in my career, where most of us talk about coordination, participatory approaches, inclusivity, and customer care but No One truly works for it. Just ticking boxes were no more helpful and to stop the blame game between implementers, contractors, and M&Ers, I established TAGHEER believing in the VALUES that the “truth needs to be told”, “mutual respect and understanding needs to be created”, and that “we can always go the extra mile” to ensure accountability and learning. While creating a global common vision for this was beyond our scope, during this period, we served our clients with sincerity guided by our values and shared stories of success and failure for learning and improvement; an effort to CHANGE perceptions and weak practices. TAGHEER during this time has expanded the scope of services beyond only Afghanistan to include the US and Turkey.
