The World Food Program has launched sewing education programs across Afghanistan for women’s self-sufficiency.

The organization stated the purpose of these programs as “women’s self-sufficiency in Afghanistan” in a message on its social media platform X on Monday.

The World Food Program emphasized that this decision comes simultaneously with the reduction in “economic opportunities” for women in Afghanistan.

This comes as UN support for women entrepreneurs to expand job opportunities in Afghanistan has increased in various sectors.

Previously, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) had reported providing short-term job opportunities to over 16,000 women in Afghanistan.

Additionally, some students in sewing workshops in Kabul advocate for creating job opportunities for women as they want to “help their families in these conditions” and improve their skills.

Husna Rufi, the head of one of the sewing workshops in Kabul, said at a graduation ceremony that over 60 young women from this workshop work with her in a safe environment.

She told Khaama Press in an interview that there is also a demand for educational programs for girls deprived of education in Afghanistan.

This comes as girls’ interest in industries and trade, sewing, opening restaurants, and art workshops has increased over the past two years.
