The Mission of SAWA-Australia (SA) Inc. is to support projects dedicated to the empowerment of the women and girls of Afghanistan. We aim to assist Afghan women and girls to learn new skills and become independent.
Our Goals are to:
- Raise funds to support the Vocational Training Centre in Kabul.
- Advocate for, and promote the human rights of, the women of Afghanistan
- Communicate with everyone involved with SAWA-Australia (SA) Inc.
- Ensure the sound governance and administration of our organisation.
SAWA is operated entirely by volunteers and does not use any donated income to pay staff. As a consequence, SAWA has extremely low administrative overheads (1-2%) and all donations given to SAWA-Australia (SA) go to projects in Afghanistan.
Our partners in Afghanistan are OPAWC (Organisation for Promoting Afghan Women’s Capabilities) and AFCECO (Afghan Child Education and Care Organisation).
SAWA’s strength comes from its members and supporters. Join SAWA-Australia (SA) today!
