What We Do

At Child Advocacy & Women’s Rights International, we are dedicated to promoting child welfare and women’s rights around the world. The well-being of women is inextricably linked to the success of children and the home itself, and we work to ensure that families thrive in healthy and productive environments. Our mission is to educate, enable, and empower: we give girls the tools to become great women who will make great strides to make far-reaching impacts in their community and the world.  By working with our community partners in Afghanistan, we seek to improve the daily lives and welfare of women and children in the poorest nations through health education and empowerment.
Educate
As a fundamental human right, and as a basis for future opportunities, education is one of our main focus areas. We believe that education is the first step in empowering women to become productive members of society. Toward this goal, our programs seek to:
  • Promote girls’ primary education
  • Increase access to secondary education for young women
  • Increase access to resources and infrastructure that will improve schools
  • Strengthen educators and create alternative settings for informal learning
Enable
We aim to provide infrastructure and financial aid to support women in attaining their career and personal goals. We seek to give women the foundation they need to be self-sufficient. To actualize this dream:
  • Giving women the tools they need to become independent to effectively benefit their communities as a whole
  • Promote innovative, sustainable technology and alternative resources in today’s energy crisis
  • Creating safe spaces for women to expose them to local education and health services that can help improve their quality of life
Empower
Women often lack the means to exercise their human rights. By promoting equal access to economic, civic, and social resources, we seek to empower women to fulfill their rights through programs that aim to:
  • Create pathways for women to engage in public life, including voting and participation in legislative processes
  • Increase representation of women in decision-making processes and leadership roles
  • Increase access to means of employment and economic resources, including financial independence, training for income-generation, and livelihoods
