An organization held a nationwide competition initiative in a bid to create job opportunities for youth.
The initiative is named “Kar Afrini." The youth from 34 provinces of Afghanistan will present their economic proposals and only three of them will be confirmed.
“The Kar Afrini camp is launched to help grow the economy and reduce poverty in Afghanistan,” said Abdul Qadir Beheshti.
The youths who participated in this initiative said that such programs will increase their access to work.
“The youth are being encouraged and they see that there are people who understand their ideas and plans. Some others see a competition and become motived,” said Mohammad Mustafa, a participant.
The legal advisor for the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI), Abdul Salam Kohi, urged the Islamic Emirate to cooperate with the private sector.
“Governments are obliged to give time to the plans and proposals of the private sector and educational organizations,” he said.
The initiative includes three phases. 62 groups participated in the first phase of the competition. 26 groups have been selected, which includes 16 women and 10 men.
