Afghans Learn Leadership for the 21st Century



Through 2 training workshops, 60 Afghan leaders will develop advanced skills to further human rights and build peaceful education, government, infrastructure, and health systems in Afghanistan.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most Afghan professionals fled the country during the decades-long war or were killed. Afghanistan’s emerging leaders are new to these roles. Afghans, especially women, are eager to participate fully in the reconstruction of their homeland. They want to build on the gains that have been made to protect human rights, advance democracy and civic involvement, and develop capable organizations and institutions to bring healthcare and education to every Afghan.

How will this project solve this problem?

60 Afghan leaders will learn management, collaboration, goal setting, and communication skills and how to integrate peace and human rights concepts into the workplace. Each of the workshops lasts 10 to 15 days.

Potential Long Term Impact

Past workshop participants have convinced their families to allow women and girls to go to school and receive healthcare. Some have become candidates for Parliament or political appointees. Others have developed their own educational organizations.
