Advancing Higher Education for Afghanistan's Development (AHEAD)

The Advancing Higher Education for Afghanistan’s Development (AHEAD) program supports the government of Afghanistan and its Ministry of Higher Education to increase access to higher education for vulnerable populations, improve the quality and relevance of higher education to respond to market needs, and enhance the management and administrative capacity of higher education institutions (HEIs) and government counterparts.
 
The overall goal of AHEAD is to increase employability of Afghans through Afghan HEIs with the following objectives:
  1. Increased access to higher education, especially for vulnerable groups like women
  2. Improved quality and relevance of higher education that supports market needs
  3. Enhanced management capacity and sustainability of the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and Afghan public and private higher education institutions
The AHEAD project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
