Catalyzing the potential of Afghan girls through formal agricultural education
Women and girls make up nearly 70% of the agricultural work force in Afghanistan, yet only 15% of students in formal agriculture education are female, and even fewer are able to realize their career aspirations in the formal sector. With the recent dramatic developments in the country, their future seems even more uncertain. On December 1, Echidna Global Scholar, Nangyalai Attal, will lead a workshop centered around how national and international actors can increase Afghan girls’ participation in formal agriculture TVET and ensure that girls and young women take their rightful place in the country’s growth and development.

Attal will be joined by local and international actors for a timely and relevant conversation. The workshop will also include opportunities for networking and audience interaction.
