Women for Afghan Women: Help Keep Afghan Women Safe
Ensuring the safety and uplifting the voices of Afghan women in Afghanistan and in the United States
About this Giving Opportunity
Women for Afghan Women (WAW) is the largest women's rights organization in Afghanistan and the only culturally competent organization serving Afghans (and other immigrants) in the New York area. WAW rescues and defends women who are survivors of violence, including helping them escape the Taliban. They also conduct culture change work to gain and advance women's rights in all levels of society.
WAW has now improved the lives of 1.6 million women, children, and families through their programs in Afghanistan and their New York Community Center. WAW has 32 centers and programs that reach all 34 provinces in Afghanistan. Their New York Community Center not only provides direct services and programs to Afghans and immigrants in New York, but also remote comprehensive services to Afghans across the United States.
Currently, they have staff and teams on the ground in Kabul and other cities who are working hard to provide direct support and assistance to our clients—what they call the women and children who are under their care—and other staff. They are using all available resources to ensure that clients and staff, both in Afghanistan and in the United States, have what they need to survive this crisis and remain safe.
About the Project
Your donation will support critical, 24/7 efforts—allowing WAW to provide emergency services, resettlement support, as well continue essential programs that contribute to the safety and security of Afghan women, children, families, and WAW staff.
Just as they have done for the past 20 years, WAW, along with all their partners and supporters, will continue to uplift the voices and rights of Afghan women globally so they remain #AfghanWomenStrong.
