Strengthening women’s role in peace in Afghanistan

This project is tackling gender inequality and the poor treatment of women and girls in Afghanistan, including gender-based violence, which remains a big problem in the country.  

National policies have not generated palpable change for most women in Afghanistan for various reasons, including a disconnect between national and provincial levels.

This project is overcoming these gaps and improving the living conditions of target communities by increasing gender equality, which in turn supports inclusive peace and security.
