Women’s Integrated Services and Facilities Center to be Established in Kabul

UNHCR and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in collaboration with the Afghanistan Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI) are partnering to establish a women’s integrated services and facilities center in Kabul.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said the integrated facilities center will support women-run businesses, training programs and will also provide financial support for female entrepreneurs.

UNHCR in a tweet on Friday said the initiative was launched in collaboration with UNODC and AWCCI, aimed at supporting women-run businesses, training programs and more.

The center will also support internally displaced people and Afghan refugees who have returned to the country, the organization said.

The business center for Afghan women will be established following the series of bans imposed by the Taliban regime restricting women and girls from having social and political engagements in Afghanistan for the past nearly two years.

A considerable number of businesswomen and female entrepreneurs have been forced to stay at home since the Taliban seized power in August 2021.

Meanwhile, a group of Afghan women entrepreneurs created a local market exclusively for women in Faizabad city of northeastern Badakhshan province, aimed at improving the economic well-being of needy families.
