The Afghan Women Welfare Department (AWWD), a non-affiliated and nonprofit making Afghan woman NGO, was established in July 1989. The purpose was to deal with the great women-related emergency needs, which existed in providing services to the Afghan refugee women in NWFP. During the past years of war in Afghanistan, the Afghan women have been deprived of all their human and national rights including right to education and health care.
AWWD is an organization committed to responding holistically to the needs of women in our culturally-restricted community. We promote the empowerment and safety of women, through high-quality counseling, rights equality, education, Legal support, and resources. We work toward community connectedness and violence-free society.”
To help Afghan women find their place in the society and empower the status of Afghan women, within the family & community through providing the educational, social and legal program.
