About The Asia Foundation:

The Asia Foundation is a non-profit international development organization committed to improving lives across a dynamic and developing Asia. Informed by six decades of experience and deep local expertise, its programs address critical issues affecting Asia in the 21st-century − governance and law, economic development, women’s empowerment, environment, and regional cooperation. Headquartered in San Francisco, The Foundation works through a network of offices in 18 Asian countries and in Washington, DC.

 

In Afghanistan, the Foundation has been a leading advocate for women’s empowerment and works on the premise that improving social, economic, and political opportunities for women will improve society overall. The organization has pioneered projects to promote opportunities for Afghan women by forging strategic relationships with government institutions, local NGOs, and influential non-state actors, particularly traditional community, and religious leaders. 

 

Project Introduction

Following the success of the first phase of the Strengthened Access to Justice for Women Affected by Violence through Proven Culturally Sensitive Approaches (SA2JWAV) project, the Foundation obtained extensions of the project to continue work to prevent violence against women in Afghanistan. Under the project, the Foundation is building capacity of religious, traditional, and local leaders and community members on women’s Islamic rights to prevent violence against women. The Foundation is also providing support to women victims of violence through Community Dialogue Groups (CDGs) and Family Resolution Centers (FRCs) to improve VAW case management and referral mechanisms. The project is being implemented in Nangahar, Khost, Takhar, Badghis, Kandahar, Herat, Kunduz and Urozgan provinces.
