In efforts to provide a conducive work environment to female police in the department; AWSDC has finally been successful to get a formal policy signed and approved by the MoI. The policy is currently under printing process. it will be shared with everyone very soon.
The policy was developed based upon the findings of survey that AWSDC’s research team conducted in five provinces of Afghanistan. It was found out that women were in very miserable condition at the police department. But this policy is going to be a very good stepping stone for developing broader policies in the favor of female police. We would like to thank MoI and all the other people who supported us in making it possible. We appreciate financial supports of Tawanmandi for this initiative.
