Thousands of Afghan refugees and evacuees need our help to settle into their new lives in the US.
For over 20 years, Women for Afghan Women (WAW) has been a lifeline for women and families in Afghanistan and the United States. We have made over 1.6 million lives better through our programs.
Our mission began as both a response to a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and as a way to empower and support Afghan refugees in the United States (US).
Two decades later, here we are again facing another major humanitarian crisis. In the past six months alone, we have witnessed a 300% increase in requests for our services and programs in the US after the NATO troop withdrawal and the fall of the Afghan government in 2021.
Can you help us ensure that refugee and evacuee women, children, and families receive culturally appropriate and immediate support?
Please donate to help us support

Women for Afghan Women (WAW) is a grassroots civil society organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York. In particular, WAW works to help Afghan women and girls exercise their rights to pursue their individual potential to self-determination, and to representation in all areas of life—political, social, cultural, and economic. WAW relentlessly advocates for women’s rights and challenges the norms that underpin gender-based violence to influence attitudes and bring about change.
