NSDP Brief Introduction

The National Skills Development Program (NSDP) is one of the National Priority Programs announced by His Excellency the President of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Berlin, Germany in 2004. The overall goal of NSDP is to contribute to the socio-economic recovery of Afghanistan through the development of a national Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system that is responsive to labor market needs and that provides Afghan women and men with the knowledge and skills for decent work. NSDP works through its two strategic and interlinked components which are the funding of high quality labor market driven vocational training and the TVET system building.
