- Provide life-saving and life-changing services to women and children affected by violence in the United States (US) and Afghanistan;
- Train a new generation of advocates that promote women's rights as human rights;
- Respond proactively to changing political environments in Afghanistan and the US;
- Advocate to ensure women's and immigrants' voices are amplified and that they participate in all levels of society; and
- Empower Afghan women so that they can participate at every stage of the peacebuilding process so that true and lasting peace can be achieved in Afghanistan.
We have survived attacks on our centers, threats to our staff, and every other crisis and political tide in Afghanistan and the US for over 19 years in order to protect the rights of thousands of women and girls.
If our work is at risk, the substantial gains and progress Afghan women and girls have made since the fall of the Taliban—are at-risk.
