Afghanistan Cultural Heritage Consulting Organisation (ACHCO)

The Objective of ACHCO is to contribute to the preservation of Afghanistan's rich cultural heritage, with particular emphasis on historic monuments.

The organisation's strategy is to

  • contribute to the work of the Ministry of Information and Culture and its other partners in documenting and conserving key historic monuments in Afghanistan,
  • ensure that Afghan professionals and craftsmen have opportunities for training that might enable them to effectively participate in the conservation of historic monuments and other activities,
  • collect and disseminate information related to the built heritage of Afghanistan.

ACHCO is an apolitical, non-profit, cultural organisation founded by Afghan professionals with experience in the conservation of historic monuments in Afghanistan, and was registered in Afghanistan in 2011.
