Afghanistan Challenge Campaign

Afghanistan Challenge Campaign - AfghanistanPSThe goal of this project is to increase private sector development and improve the economic  opportunities of vulnerable women in Afghanistan by supporting successful, hard-working microfinance institutions that extend financial services to a female clientele.

The project has increased Canadian engagement in the positive story of Afghan women empowered with earning a livelihood through the work of microfinance. Funds raised through this engagement will harness the interest and donations of Canadians towards improving the situation in Afghanistan. These funds will strengthen the capacity of microfinance practitioners in the country, provide financial support to Afghan microentrepreneurs who otherwise would not have access to such funding and engage Canadian citizens in the rebulding process in Afghanistan
