Vocational courses for women in Afghanistan were organized by the Turkish Cooperation Coordination Agency (TIKA) in collaboration with the Maarif Foundation.
Recently, the center organized training courses for women in sewing, embroidery, cooking and Turkish language to increase the participation of women in the socioeconomic development of the country.
The center launched six-month vocational courses to help Afghan women to acquire new professions, participate in the various aspects of social life, stand on their own feet and contribute to their family and to the economy.
The courses took place in the Maarif Foundation’s education center in Afghanistan’s northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
Within the scope of vocational courses for women, 140 women were trained in sewing, embroidery, cooking and the Turkish language.
