The current project year will see a further 200 men reached through training classes and step-down sessions in the communities. Up to 12 women’s group businesses will also receive business start-up kits, to strengthen the sustainability and profitability of their newly established group businesses.

As part of our partnership with the UK, Women for Women International have also been piloting Community Protection Committees. In many areas of Afghanistan, communities rely heavily on informal mechanisms when seeking justice or to resolve disputes. Survivors of gender-based violence and their families often turn to community councils for advice and assistance.

The Community Protection Committees, consisting of graduates of our training, seek to strengthen these traditional models of support by acting as a first point of call for women’s rights issues in the communities and providing referrals to relevant specialist service providers.
