OUR WORK IN AFGHANISTAN

Since 2002, Women for Women International - Afghanistan has reached more than 120,000 women through our work.

Decades of violence in Afghanistan have left millions of women and girls displaced or widowed. Common discriminatory practices, amplified by extremist groups, often make it dangerous for women to seek education, healthcare services, employment, or, in some cases, even to leave their homes.

Your support will ensure women in Afghanistan are not forgotten.
