Women’s empowerment


Afghanistan is one of the countries with the worst living conditions for women, due in particular to alarming rates of maternal and child health and the daily violence suffered by women:

0 %
Women illiterate
children out of 1,000 die before the age of 5 (4 per 1,000 in France)
0 %
Reported women having experienced at least one form of physical, sexual or psychological violence or forced marriage in their lifetime

These various programmes follow an integrated approach and offer a project of socio-community support for women based on 3 axes: prevention, access to healthcare and economic emancipation through vocational training. Health and Education centers are thus safe places where women can exchange, learn and have access to safe care.

According to Mohammed Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner, the reparation of vulnerable women victims of violence is only complete if it involves socio-economic reparation. The dimensions of psychological support and economic assistance offered in our centers are therefore intertwined, with the success of one reinforcing the chances of success of the other and vice versa.
