IRC (International Rescue Committee)

IRC Background
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) began working with Afghan refugee communities in Pakistan in 1980, and first started implementing programs inside Afghanistan in 1988. IRC Afghanistan program is working in 8 provinces including Kabul Main Office; IRC Afghanistan is working in Education, National Solidarity Program and Humanitarians Program.
Given the unstable and unpredictable security situation in all of Afghanistan it has been deemed essential that all IRC staff compounds and offices be provided with around the clock protection.  This protection is to be in the form of unarmed guards whose function is to serve as a deterrent to intrusion and to raise an alarm and call for assistance in the event of an intrusion or any other threat to the health and well-being of IRC staff and property.
