Project Background:

Amplify Change project being implemented in Herat provinceaims to support Afghan women and girls to participate more effectively in decision-making about their society by empowering them to access and use their legal rights and by creating an enabling environment that facilitates their participation.

It also includes input from Oxfam’s local CSO partners the Afghan Women Network (AWN) provincial-level Department of Women’s Affairs (DOWA) provincial officials and women and men leaders from project districts. Amplify Change integrates lessons learned from previous initiatives including the need to develop holistic approaches to women and girl’s empowerment programming that integrate awareness-raising leadership and modeling behavior—particularly among men boys religious and political leaders; access to justice support services and economic opportunity for victims of violence; and increased CSO effectiveness on accountability knowledge sharing and advocacy for policy influence.AWEC is the implementing partner of AC project in Herat province and implements the project in three districts Enjil Karokh and Gozara.
