Women in Afghanistan face pervasive insecurity, lack of livelihoods, educational inequalities, threats of sexual violence, and poor health and well-being. With your help, Women for Women International can create opportunities for change in the lives of these marginalized women.
Since 2002, Women for Women International - Afghanistan has served more than 125,000 women through our yearlong program. Nearly 110 women have taken out microcredit loans to help them build their own businesses.
Women for Women International has developed a program that offers Afghan women a constructive, dignified way to regain control of their lives. Our foundational training helps women know and defend their rights, mentally and physically lead healthy lives, influence decisions at home and in their communities, initiate activities that generate income, and save money for the future, contributing to economic self-sufficiency in their lives and for their families.
