In A First, 20 Women Army, Air Force Officers From Afghanistan To Be Trained In Chennai


For the first time, a group of 20 women army and air force officers from Afghanistan will be trained at the Officers’ Training Academy in Chennai. The group, who were given a celebratory send-off by the Indian ambassador in Kabul, Manpreet Vohra, will go through a rigorous training module in India. They left Kabul on Tuesday.

This comes on the heels of yet another group of only women entrepreneurs who were sent by the Afghan government to India to participate in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Hyderabad last week.

The current batch of officers and officials from the Afghan defence ministry will be given a preparatory training program at the OTA. They will go back to pick a fresh batch of women officers who will come in for full training modules from 2018.
