The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U. S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan is pleased to announce an open competition for assistance awards through this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).
PAS Kabul invites all eligible organizations to submit a proposal for a cooperative agreement to implement
the Literature with Positive Messages for Afghan Youth project.
This project will include conducting a nation-wide writing contest to produce six books of fiction for children ages 9 to 12 in Dari and Pashto (three of each), illustrating and publishing the books, and distributing them to target audiences.
The content of the books should be accessible for this age group and include one or more of the following five themes:
positive community and social engagement, tolerance for differences, gender equality, peaceful conflict resolution, and respect for the government, elders, and other community members.
PAS intends to issue the award for a period of 12 months.
