Descriptif
The project supports the Afghan civil society to deliver vocational training and access to women employment in close collaboration with the National Skills Development Program of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs Martyrs and Disabled and the Ministry of Women Affairs. The project has contracted 5 local NGOs to deliver vocational trainings in sectors responding to market needs and in line with the National Occupational Skills Standard to 1250 vulnerable women in 5 provinces (Herat, Bamyan, Badakhshan, Kabul and Ghor). The women beneficiaries were selected on the basis of criterias like the level of education, and income. The 6-month training in sectors like carpet weaving, embroidery, bakery, goat farming and catering also included literacy and numeracy skills, and notion of security and hygiene in the workplace. The beneficiaries also received a toolkit and professional support to start their own activity or to find a job in a company. NSDP is currently carrying out a tracer study to find out how many women found a job or a better job at the end of the training. The organization of II Level courses will be funded thanks to a new grant of Euro 800,000 approved in March 2015.
