Laal-U-Anar Foundation

Afghan Women Abroad

Throughout the years of war and suffering in Afghanistan, it is the women who have suffered the most: including from war, oppression, and the loss of husbands, sons, and parents.  Throughout all of this, they continue to take care of all those around them; they are the strength of Afghan families and the nation.  Moreover, Afghan women have used every resource and opportunity  to excel.  The Laal-u-Anar Foundation honors Afghan women and recognizes their hard work.

There are many Afghan women who have achieved the tops of their respective fields throughout Europe, North America, and the world.  The Foundation is working to identify Afghan women who have achieved international success and is developing a database, “Afghan Women Abroad.”  The Afghan Ministry of Women’s Affairs  is coordinating with the Foundation to recognize the efforts and achievements of these women.  

These “Afghan Women Abroad” are the true ambassadors of Afghanistan.  The Foundation will work to recognize their success and connect them with women in Afghanistan and internationally to foster cooperation and further opportunities.  We also seek to introduce mentors to other Afghan women who are trying to achieve their own dreams in various fields.  Moreover, the Afghan Women Abroad initiative is meant to showcase the true face of strong Afghan women who provide a solid  base for our society.
