WLD instituted a scholarship program that provided women in Herat, Kabul, Kandahar, Balkh, and Nangarhar provinces the opportunity to participate in technical training opportunities to advance their skills, enhance their self-confidence, and increase their employability.

The scholarship program was subject to a set of pre-specified selection criteria and a commitment to meeting the defined benchmarks. The Need-Based Scholarship Program (NBSP) for WLD beneficiaries paid for successful applicants’ training costs during the training period.

Areas of Training

The WLD Need-Based Scholarship Program offered each successful applicant an extensive, three-month training in one of the following areas:

  • Information and Computer Technology
  • English Language
  • Office Management
  • Healthcare skills


Accepted applicants received two hours of classroom training per day in one of the selected institutions in the five target WLD provinces.
