Increased Access to Education Among Afghan Girls
Empowering women and closing gender gaps is a proven method of enhancing economic productivity. According to the International Monetary Fund now that 40% of the worldwide labor force is female, education and training opportunities for women and girls are even more important to economic development. Overall economic productivity increases as women are trained to more fully utilize their skills and talents in the workplace. This broader economic opportunity helps not only the women and girls themselves, it creates a more stable and functional society at-large.
