The Peacebuilders Club
Afghanistan is still in the most dangerous places in the world for women and girls.
87% of Afghan women are illiterate, only 2% of women have access to higher education and they still face major barriers to accessing employment. This excludes them from playing a meaningful role in decision-making processes.
Close to 90% of Afghan women and girls suffer from at least one form of abuse, including physical or psychological violence, and 70-80% face forced marriage, many before the age of 16.
Our goal is to tackle these problems and barrier !
By interactive dialogue with community, religious and ethnic leaders about women and human rights and enhancing the capacity of young women and girls peace-builders in community dialogues.
With peer mentoring program in different provinces of Afghanistan, AWWDA aim is enhance the capacity of young women in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. With development, and social and economic empowerment courses.
AWWDA provides both online and offline classes with the help of Peace-builders club members to reach out to different communities in Afghanistan via Zoom, Skype and Peacebuilders Club Radio.
The Peacebuilders Club members will organize different brunches per week to discuss about their rights, plans, and different strategies for the betterment of equal Afghanistan.
