At C&C Tendering, we’re proud to have the opportunity to work with inspired local organisations from across the globe. Here are just a few of their stories.
Nangarhar (Afghanistan)
Women’s Empowerment

The literacy rate among adult women in Afghanistan is one of the lowest in the world. The Afghanistan Women Council has recognised that building a strong foundation for change is a prerequisite to any equitable socio-economic development.
Working with C&C Tendering, the Council designed a project to create physical spaces to engage women through literacy and basic business training. So far the project has created 10 new women’s committees and trained over 1000 Afghani women in literacy and business skills, with over 80% of them now making their own income.
Punjab (Pakistan) Abolishing Bonded Labour
Over 1.8 million people are bonded into labor on brick kilns in the Punjab Province, depriving them of their most basic human rights. The burden of the loan and mounting interest at exorbitant rates, leaves laborers trapped into the exploitive cycle of bondage, enslaving whole families for generations. The Insan Dost Association focuses on ending this practice by providing social and legal protection and citizenship rights to people in bondage and creating new paths to help them to freedom.
Cairo (Egypt) 
Contemporary Arts

Egypt’s political changes have also heralded in numerous cultural ones, including the creation of the 9th Art Foundation and their publication of Egypt’s first Comics magazine. This new publication was an important milestone for contemporary Egyptian artistic culture and has grown to become a leading force within the Egyptian cultural sector. Assisted by C&C Tendering, the 9th Art Foundation has since obtained their first grants, helping the emerging organisation jumpstart their comic magazine and begin organising public events.
