First Group of Afghan Women Arrived to Uzbekistan to Start TVET Education in Agronomy

The first group of 10 Afghan women arrived in Tashkent to study in Uzbekistan under the program of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in the field of Agronomy for the next 2.5 years, Akipress reported.

This is made possible by a cross-border initiative aimed at supporting the economic empowerment of Afghan women through education grants to study in Uzbekistan.

The Regional Project “Supporting the Economic Empowerment of Afghan Women through Education and Training in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan” funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) aims to provide educational opportunities for Afghan women, who face disproportionate barriers to education and employment compared to their men counterparts back home.

Overall, 50 young women from Afghanistan will study and graduate from universities in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

EU has provided a €2 million grant for the initiative, which will be implemented by UNDP in 2020-2025.

The main goal of this project in Uzbekistan is to deliver TVET training for Afghan Women due to the proximity and the experience of the government and higher education institutions in providing international exchange education. The priority sector for education is agriculture as a growth sector with particular attention to promoting gender equality.
