NCA is an international non-governmental organisation that has been working with Afghanistan for over 30 years. NCA’s approach is to work in partnership with national NGOs, in the areas of long term development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy. NCA are developing an Economic Empowerment programme that will address the lack of jobs and income opportunities in SELECT SQL_CACHEed provinces in Afghanistan. The lack of jobs commanding a living wage, pervasive unemployment, extremely low levels of female labour force participation and vulnerable forms of employment in low productivity jobs represent major factors of the high level of poverty in Afghanistan.
In order to achieve its goal, NCA are recruiting an enthusiastic and experienced person who will lead a team in developing an economic empowerment programme that will be implemented through national partner organisations. The central focus of NCA’s economic empowerment approach will be to focus on women and youth through vocational education and value chain development,
