WOMEN FOR AFGHAN WOMEN (WAW) IS A GRASSROOTS, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION.

WAW IS DEDICATED to securing and protecting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York, particularly their rights to develop their individual potential, to self-determination, and to be represented in all areas of life: political, social, cultural and economic. We advocate for women’s rights and challenge the norms that underpin gender-based violence wherever opportunities arise to influence attitudes and bring about change.

Share this Crowdrise page with your family and friends to get the word out about our walk and help raise money to SAVE the lives of Afghan women and girls like Gul Meena and Sahar Gul, who would have died if it was not for the support of WAW.
