Women’s Leadership Development
The PROMOTE IDIQ represents USAID’s biggest investment in shaping the image of its legacy in Afghanistan, making it among the highest profile projects implemented by the Agency in the country since the fall of the Taliban. The IDIQ’s Task Order #2, “Women’s Leadership Development” (WLD) was issued at the same time with the IDIQ. All participants in other PROMOTE TOs (WLD’s primary beneficiary group) will be given extensive leadership training through WLD, and a second smaller set of less educated and younger beneficiaries (WLD’s secondary beneficiary group), not reached by any other part of PROMOTE, will participate in a “work and life skills” curriculum to prepare them for meaningful vocations that will allow them to contribute to their family’s financial security. In total, WLD will train more than 25,000 women (about 18,000 primary and 7,000 secondary beneficiaries).
