Welcome to the website of Child Advocacy and Women’s Rights International!

Welcome to our new Manager of Operations, Dr. Hajar Abulfazl!

Hajar Abulfazl is an advocate for women’s empowerment through sports and health, whose efforts span grassroots to elite levels. She believes that sport improves health, academic, economic and social conditions for women and girls – healthier women and girls will contribute to a stronger society and country! She received her medical degree in 2017 from Khatam-Al-Nabyeen University in Afghanistan. She is member of the Afghanistan Women’s National Football Team, coach of a football team, and former head of both the women’s and finance committees for the Afghanistan Football Federation. Hajar participated in the 2016 United Nations Winter Assembly as youth delegate from Afghanistan. She was among the ninth finalists in the social change competition out of the 600 delegates. In May 2016, she participated in the International Visitor Leadership Program and traveled throughout the United States visiting organizations and individuals who support sports development for Afghan women. Hajar gives back to her country by applying what she has learned to build familiarity and acceptance of women and girls in sport. She firmly believes that sports are good for women and for the future of democracy in Afghanistan.
