Summary

Over 87% of Afghan women have experienced physical, psychological, or sexual violence or forced marriage at some point in their life. For too many, it is part of their daily life. WfWI's year-long holistic training program will help women learn about their rights and how to fight for those rights. 75% of WfWI - Afghanistan graduates report taking action to stop violence against them, compared to 1% at enrollment.

Challenge

Today, many Afghans remain unaware of women's rights to political participation, to earn an income, and to legally defend themselves against discrimination and domestic violence. This project will ultimately help to empower Afghan women.

Solution

WfWI - Afghanistan will provide its participants with information on their rights, basic health awareness and job skills training.

Long-Term Impact

WfWI - Afghanistan will provide women with the skills and knowledge necessary to fight for their rights, participate in their communities and provide income for their families.
