Promote Musharikat

Promote is a partnership between the Government of Afghanistan and the United States Agency for International Development to secure the gains made by Afghan women in the past decade 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. This effort is expected to empower 75,000 women.

The Musharikat activity, which means ‘partnership’ or ‘participation’ in Dari and Pashto, is one of four Promote projects. Musharikat is designed to build a cadre of more than 5,000 activists and 300 civil society organizations (CSOs) from all 34 provinces to more effectively advocate for and advance women’s equality and empowerment in Afghanistan.

Objectives:

  • Build constituencies among national, provincial, and local activists and CSOs focused on promoting women’s equality and empowerment;
  • Strengthen more effective advocacy for women’s equality and empowerment;
  • Increase awareness of and support for women’s rights in all provinces in Afghanistan;
  • Increase the effectiveness of civil society and the Government of Afghanistan in the development and implementation of gender policies, laws, and regulations.
