Stacks Image 2672
Formed in 1995, the Afghan Women’s Network (AWN) is a non-partisan, non-profit network of women and women’s organizations working to empower Afghan women and ensure their equal participation in Afghan society. The members of the Network recognize the value and role of children as the future of Afghanistan and, as such, regard the empowerment and protection of children as fundamental to their work. The Network fosters partnerships and collaboration between members, undertakes advocacy and lobbying, and builds their individual capacities.
Through its Advocacy and Lobbying Department, AWN promotes the voices and perspectives of Afghan women in political and social arenas, and pressures Afghan leaders to create legislative reforms that protect and promote women’s rights and interests. For instance, AWN was instrumental in passing the EVAW law, Regulation of Safe House, and Elections Law. AWN has offices in Kabul, Jalalabad, Herat, Kandahar, Balkh, Bamyan, Paktia, and Kunduz.
