Program Introduction:

To walk the trend of truthfulness and honesty, transparency, integrity, and accountability among the local-government staff, we have initiated a provincial level program titled as “Government Officials of the Year Program” In Laghman, Kunar, and Nangarhar Provinces. The Program is supported by UNDP and Royal Danish Embassy, and it is implemented by Afghan Paramount Welfare and Development Organization (APWDO). The program will end up by selecting the transparent, honest, and competent employee in the mentioned provinces.


Government officials of the Year Programis designed and implemented as a zonal-wide motivational platform for local government supervisory staff that will automatically lay the foundations of transparency, honesty, and truthfulness in the region. The idea of the program is to organize an inter-departmental and inter-ministry competition program between local directorates, ministries, provincial authorities, and the like. Ultimately, after an assessment phase, the three candidates (from three different government directorates) from each province is chosen and introduced as final runner up for this program. After a two months online voting, each of the three runner ups from Laghman, Kunar, and Nangarhar provinces will secure places as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd runner ups. The candidate’s selection criteria are determined based on their productive services, transparency, integrity, and truthfulness followed by positive recommendations of their directors and beneficiaries. The winners will be publicized through print and online media and will lay a great impact on fellow government employees to adopt and practice honestly and fight against corruption in the local systems.

Candidates Identification & online voting:

Local authorities / in-line directorates, and community-based beneficiaries will help us identify the candidates.  Once identified, the candidates will be introduced as 3 runner ups in each province. They will be regionally publicized by most accessible means in the area. An online or real-time E-Polling portal is designed to collect the votes for a definite period of 2 months. Then, each candidate will secure a place by means of the highest number of votes amongst others. He/she will be awarded with admiration, recommendation for possible promotions, and will determinedly be introduced as a role model for other youths in the area.

Program Objectives:

The program objectives are to promote and encourage transparency and accountability among the government staff through rewarding, publicizing, and appreciating the honest government employees.

Program Impacts:

The effective results of “Government Officials of the Year Program” will re-awake the spirit of “Zero Tolerance against Corruption” among the local communities. Meanwhile, beneficiaries will understand the know-how of fighting, raising voices, and combatting against the on-going corruption and injustice in the private and public sectors.
