Women's Empowerment and Development Committee

Both modern history and current research in developing countries such as Afghanistan strongly suggest that peace and democracy are advanced when societies become educated, respect grows for human rights, and equal rights and education are provided for women and girls.
Education for girls, results in more sustainable families, income growth and eventually democracy.  It reduces domestic violence, and it increases the participation of girls and women in society, enables them to earn a livable income, encourages them to become active citizens, and influences the broader development of tolerance throughout society.
The education and empowerment of girls and women are likely to decrease the influence of the extremism. When girls and women know their legal rights they can speak for themselves, vote to determine their own futures, take the society away from extremism, and eventually promote democracy.

The mission of AABA women empowerment and development committee is to be the change we want to see in our world.

We will achieve this by educating our communities on the issues that affect women. We will empower one another to boldly step out to fight for the rights of the Afghan women to have a good life, live in sustainable communities and enjoy the fruits of social, economic, and environmental justice.
