About Tetra Tech -Women's Leadership Development
The Promote program is USAID’s largest ever investment in women’s empowerment. The Women’s Leadership Development (WLD) program will enable Afghanistan’s most talented young women to become future leaders in government, business, and civil society. Over five years, 25,000 women with exceptional leadership potential and commitment to positive social change will be recruited and enrolled in the program, targeting specifically:
1) The Primary Target Group includes women between the ages of 18–30 who possess at least a high school diploma, though many will also have undertaken some college, university, or technical vocational and educational training (TVET) study or possess a university degree.
2) The Secondary Target Group includes Afghan women between the ages of 15-24 who have completed primary school and perhaps some secondary schooling or TVET but who have not graduated from high school.
WLD will provide them with the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to enter the upper levels of decision-making in all sectors of society. As they move into decision-making roles, they will be empowered to ensure that Afghan women’s voices are represented in government, business, and social institutions throughout the country. They will advocate for policies and practices supporting women’s equality, welfare, and empowerment; they will promote women’s participation in programs, thereby promoting peace and prosperity; and they will make certain that support for girls and women is not on the fringes of Afghanistan’s agenda but integrated prominently and sustainably into the country’s strategic plans for the future.
The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Specialist will lead and coordinate public-private partnership initiatives and activities by exploring, implementing, and advocating for opportunities to engage private, public, and NGO sector stakeholders to advance PROMOTE objectives. S/he will manage stakeholder communication and develop relationships with partner organizations throughout the process of designing, launching, and managing partnership initiatives. The PPP Specialist, with the assistance of SSG Advisors, will implement a partnership development strategy that is designed to identify and respond to private sector interests to develop sustainable, effective, impactful partnerships.
