Act With Afghan Women

In the last year Afghanistan has plunged into political, social, and economic crisis. 

Women for Women International is calling on governments and policymakers ahead of the September United Nations General Assembly to support Afghan women as they lead the fight for their rights and try to rebuild their shattered communities.  

Sign the petition to #ActWithAfghanWomen demanding:

1. In addition to immediate aid, longer-term funding to women-led initiatives for Afghan women to re-enter the workforce.  

2. Education for ALL Afghan women and girls to help give them the opportunities they deserve.

3. Afghans to be allowed to access their personal, private funds as an urgent priority.

Help make sure Afghan women’s voices are heard.


It is a frightening situation in Afghanistan. Women are starving and have lost access to their hard-earned rights, education, and jobs. Urgent action is needed.

Donate today to support women in Afghanistan and other places affected by war.

I was very disappointed and stressed when the new government (in Afghanistan) took over because it was so hard for me to enrol in this programme, and suddenly I couldn't learn anything, but when I heard about the resuming of the programme, I was very happy.
