The UNITAR Afghanistan Fellowship Programme - Inspiring Transformation, an annual six-month long capacity-building initiative run from the Hiroshima Office, began its 13th Cycle in November 2016 with the participation of 29 Fellows, bringing the total number of Afghan beneficiaries of the programme to over 500. This programme is for aspiring international and national social-change-leaders in Afghanistan who are seeking professional training and a certificate in project development, management, and leadership. Fellows will gain program development skills through highly interactive hands-on trainings and also become part of a professional network of over 500 alumni tackling the world’s most pressing issues inside and outside of Afghanistan.
