USAID Promote is providing educated women with the skills and support they need to excel in their chosen fields, become leaders in their communities and society, and maximize their contribution to the continued development of Afghanistan. The USAID Promote: Women in Government activity is increasing and advancing the number of women in the Afghan Civil Service. A more inclusive government will be more responsive to the needs of the entire Afghan population, thus fostering a more democratic and stable state.
Afghan women from the provinces of Kabul, Parwan and Kapisa, who have recently graduated from university, are invited to apply for the USAID Promote internship program to gain entry into the Afghan Civil Service. The interns will help the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to address harassment, policy gaps, and work environment issues that affect female employees.
