Marifatnoki was formed in 2005 with the main goal of solving local problems. The organisation addresses social, educational, legal and economic problems and helps improve and create awareness among different segments of the population in the Rasht Valley. It focuses on youth, especially around improvements in education.
Marifatnoki mobilises communities - especially youth - in solving local problems. The organization has done a number of assessments based on interviews, focus group discussions and other methods. Many of these assessments gave particular attention to women and girls.
