Administrator Shah discussed USAID’s newly launched five-year program targeting the education, promotion, and training of a new generation of Afghan women, aged 18-30. Named “Promote,” the program’s goal is to increase women’s contributions to Afghanistan’s development by strengthening women’s rights groups, boosting female participation in the economy, increasing the number of women in decision making positions within the Afghan government, and helping women gain business and management skills.
