USAID, Promote – Afghanistan

USAID, Promote – Afghanistan

Promote is USAID’s largest women’s empowerment program in the Agency’s history, aimed at advancing opportunities for Afghan women who can become political, private sector, and civil society leaders. EnCompass was engaged as part of a Consortium led by Chemonics to support facilitation and leadership development activities.

The five-year program targets the education and empowerment of a new generation of Afghan women, aged 18-30. With the goal of increasing women’s contributions to Afghanistan’s development, Promote strengthens women’s rights groups, boosts female participation in the economy, increases the number of women in decision making positions within the Afghan government, and helps women gain business and management skills.
