On behalf of Access Community Services Limited, which is one of Australia’s foremost multinational, Non- Governmental Organizations and has more than thirty years of experience in the provision of employment, training, youth support services, opportunities for migrants and refugees, and empowerment of the women as one of its key components. We appreciate your efforts towards empowering the women in Afghanistan as well. Unemployment is second big issue after security for Afghans who are leaving Afghanistan to secure jobs in other countries and it leads to immigration and becoming refuges in other nations. According to a study done by Central Statistics Organization, the unemployment figure for 2015 was only 25 percent. In 2015, unemployment has just spiked and reached to 40 percent of its time in Afghanistan. In addition, according to International Labor Organization, Afghanistan presently has the highest rate of unemployment in the World.
When we look to the situation of women in Afghanistan, unemployment is stated as the second biggest problem Afghan women are facing and a separate study indicated that only less than a quarter of government positions are occupied by women. Although Article 48 of the Afghanistan constitution stipulates that every Afghan have the right to work, the government has been weak in paving the way for providing jobs and employment.
The reason behind these unemployment is not just about the government to provide job opportunities for its citizens, it’s also about lack of professional skills and no new training while they are working inside the companies that the employees should have it and acquire it. Capacity building trainings for employees is a major success behind every success firms and organization in many other countries. Companies provide professional capacity building to increase their profit, productivity and motivation of their staff. Although this training helps and assists the company, it has also had a major role in securing job in a company, which directly effects unemployment.
The other reason is that students do not learn everything related to job and company environments while they are studying back at university and college. In fact, they lack many important and crucial lessons that they can only learn once they enter the job market. Besides, the academic lessons at Public and most of private universities are out-dated and according to the World Education News Reviews, Afghanistan education system still remains fragile. With this in mind, we cannot be sure that once students graduated from universities, they can work in job markets.
