Ottawa- November 25, 2019

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence began in Afghanistan with a high-level gathering at the Presidential Palace where H.E. President Ghani outlined the ongoing efforts, achievements as well as future priorities in addressing gender-based violence in the country.

On this occasion, we express our gratitude to all international partners including Canada for their continued support to women’s empowerment and women’s rights in Afghanistan.
