Canada Reaffirms Support for Afghanistan- Mostly empowering women and girls

At the Tokyo Conference on Sunday, Canada pledged to continue working with the people of Afghanistan to build a better, brighter future for people in need.

Canada’s development assistance is based on key reforms that the Government of Afghanistan has to implement including strengthening the rights of women, reduction of endemic corruption, and significant improvement in governance and upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

“Today’s announcement reaffirms Canada’s commitment to enhancing the well-being, security, and long-term prosperity of the Afghan people”, said Parliamentary Secretary for National Defense, Chris Alexander.

“A primary focus of Canada’s engagement in Afghanistan is the promotion of a better, and more equitable, future for women and girls,” said Mr. Alexander. “Women and girls represent a significant resource that must be fully engaged in the advancement of their country. Empowering and advancing the rights of girls and women are in the interests of Afghan families and Afghan communities.”
