Young Engagement in the Future of Afghanistan leading up to the 2014 Afghan Election


PAS Kabul invites all eligible organizations to submit a proposal for the organization of youth engagement regarding the 2014 Afghan Presidential Elections, producing local group discussions both in person and online with Afghan youth (both male and female), highlighting the importance of the upcoming Afghan Presidential Elections and leading discussions on what they view as the future of Afghanistan. The target age group is age 17-24. These discussions will take place throughout the year, leading up to the 2014 elections, with the goal of fostering credible and inclusive elections by emphasizing their importance of youth engagement in the process and their involvement in determining the future of Afghanistan. A core part of the program is to link youth through connection technology from one province to another, in fostering a sense of a national debate of key issues. The intent is both to explain the significance of these historic elections and to increase understanding and encourage participation among Afghan youth, thereby expressing confidence in the future of Afghanistan and the peaceful transfer of power.
