Through this initiative we have contributed our time and donated thousands of dollars to worthy organizations, putting our 7 principles into action and working on behalf of the dignity of all people.

October 2021: Women for Afghan Women

Women for Afghan Women logoWomen for Afghan Women (WAW) is a grassroots civil society organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York. In particular, WAW works to help Afghan women and girls exercise their rights to pursue their individual potential to self-determination, and to representation in all areas of life—political, social, cultural, and economic. WAW relentlessly advocates for women’s rights and challenges the norms that underpin gender-based violence to influence attitudes and bring about change.
