STRIVE Final Project Report: Afghan Secure Futures
Afghan Secure Futures Final Project Report
The Afghanistan Secure Futures (ASF) project enhanced economic opportunities for youth in Afghanistan by targeting youth apprentices. The program had two key components: increase the number and diversity of contracts for enterprises—primarily workshops in the construction sector—who employ youth apprentices, and improve working conditions and learning opportunities for those youth. The latter included a critical literacy training component as well as a workplace safety component. This report provides an overview of activities and results, as well as challenges and key learning from the ASF project.
