The Afghanistan Workforce Development Program (AWDP) is a four-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) implemented by Ministry of Education’s Deputy Ministry for Technical Vocational Education and Training (DM-TVET) with technical support from Creative Associates International.
The goal of the AWDP is to increase mid-career employment opportunities for Afghan men and women by improving the quality of market-driven technical training and increasing job placement and salaries in key economic sectors. Support for the expansion and strengthening of private sector for mid-career workers in key economic sectors is a priority area for both the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) and USAID.
