WAW at work
Women for Afghan Women is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We value a dynamic, diverse workforce and inclusive workplace. We employ staff without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, socio-economic status, marital or veteran status, pregnancy status, or sexual orientation.
Today, WAW continues to expand its services to provide life-changing programs, women's empowerment education, and vocational training for its clients in the United States (US) and continues to implement its humanitarian programs and work with non-governmental and other partners across Afghanistan.
Our success has been rooted in WAW's grassroots approach in the development and implementation of our programs. The organization always hires locally and uses a bottom-up approach, local knowledge, and a deep understanding of and sensitivity to local culture, traditions, customs, and challenges.
Pragmatically, this approach and operational model has manifested into core programs and services that serve the needs of over 8,000 clients.
Our capacity has grown from being volunteer-run in 2001 to having over 500 staff members--the majority of whom are Afghan women--that manage an extensive network of humanitarian programs across Afghanistan, as well as bustling community centers in New York and Virginia, and advocacy initiatives in the US.
