Despite all the challenges we face in Afghanistan, we decided to remain, and we are making a difference.
With your support, WAW has been able to provide emergency and humanitarian aid to thousands of families in need in Afghanistan.
We continue to preserve safe environments for internally-displaced persons and provide counseling, training, and aid to combat gender-based violence.
We still care for over 200 children in our Children Support Centers.
We are looking to the future and developing new initiatives in Afghanistan that extend beyond humanitarian efforts, such as economic empowerment and education.
In the United States, we have adapted and expanded operations to help the tens of thousands of Afghans still arriving at our borders with nothing but hope for a safer life and the clothes on their backs.
Today, WAW’s two community centers in New York and Virginia provide emergency support (including food, temporary shelter, clothing,), immigration legal support, English language training, financial literacy, life skills and job readiness training, among other services and programs to Afghan evacuees in addition to any immigrant community member who comes to us for help.
We work with traumatized and domestic violence survivors, and we educate partners, government, and nonprofit agencies, on culturally-sensitive support and domestic violence prevention and intervention.
With you and our 20+ years of expertise in #RisingBeyondCrisis, we are able to assist Afghans fleeing to the US and those forced to remain in Afghanistan.
Help us continue to #RiseBeyondCrisis to support Afghan women, children, and families as they rebuild their lives in the US and Afghanistan.

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 the United States. 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.
