Afghanistan will adopt Kazakhstan's experience on gender policy. Kazakh Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Development Program have signed a memorandum on launching the project of official development assistance. It is supposed to improve the economic independence of the country and help to equalize the rights of Afghan women. Kazakhstan will share its experience of gender policy, gained in the field of public administration, health and education with Afghanistan. According to the Permanent Representative of the UN Development Program in Kazakhstan Norimasa Shimomura, this is the first project, which will help Kazakhstan to get valuable skills in supporting other states.

 

Norimasa SHIMOMURA, UN RESIDENT COORDINATOR IN KAZAKHSTAN:

Our hope is that through the experience of providing assistance to Afghan women, Kazakhstan, MFA of Kazakhstan will also learn how to manage properly ODA in the future.

 

Muhammad FAROOQ BARAKI, AMBASSADOR OF AFGHANISTAN TO KAZAKHSTAN:

This project, which we signed today is also very important to you. There is the Ministry of Women's Affairs in Afghanistan. There is a very big challenge, and the project will help us in terms of gender equality. It is necessary that all the people, who live far from the center, in the villages, know that women must be respected. Women should participate in the government, and work.
