Women for Afghan Women

Women for Afghan Women is a grassroots human rights organization 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. 

WAW’s New York Community Center (NYCC) has become a lifeline and second home to the Afghan immigrant and Afghan-American community.
