Women in the Economy (WIE) Final Report

Speeches Shim

Women in the Economy (WIE) is a task order under USAID’s Promoting Gender Equity in National Priority Programs (Promote) initiative, a partnership between the Government of Afghanistan and USAID to secure the gains made by Afghan women since 2001 while providing a new generation of Afghan women with the leadership skills to make vital contributions to Afghanistan’s development in governance, civil society, and the economy. Since July 2015, while Afghanistan has continued to weather insecurity and political instability, WIE has consistently and effectively implemented interventions to increase women’s ability to engage in the economy. WIE has worked with thousands of women to help them to build their skills, raise their voices, and access resources to contribute to Afghanistan’s economic development, reduce poverty, and influence service delivery, education, and workplace policies.
