The courses will be held at the Italian base of Camp Area to redevelop and facilitate Afghan workers’ reintegration into the local socio-economic fabric. Educational activities and practices will cover the month of August, when artisans part of Confartigianato Udine will join the Alpine Brigade Julia to conduct courses in carpentry and plumbing for the male staff and aesthetics and hairdresser for female staff. The project, supported by the governor of Herat, Mohammad Asif Rahimi, is part of a broader framework to redevelop and revitalize the economy of the Province, starting from craft enterprises. In fact, in recent months, Herat hosted events such as the Fair of Local Products and the Jobs Fair that brought hundreds of entrepreneurs and put them in touch with local workers to discuss the opening of new businesses.

Since January 2015, the NATO mission in Afghanistan has changed, transforming itself from a security mission to a RS-Resolute Support one, where the Afghan armed forces are the only responsible for the security of their country. The coalition, including the Italian contingent, remain in assistance to the Army and the Afghan police.
