Dyana Afghan Women's Fund

Our Mission

To provide education and skills-training opportunities for women and girls in Afghanistan.

Who we are

The Dyana Afghan Women's Fund (DAWF) is a Canadian registered charity run entirely by volunteers. It was founded in 2004 by award winning author, filmmaker and journalist Nelofer Pazira.

What we do

Teacher and her student

Starting in 2006 we have been providing a very successful literacy program to groups of women and girls in a number of remote villages in Bamiyan province in central Afghanistan where schools and education services are very limited or non-existent. The students are eager to learn and actively share the new skills they gain with their families and their community.

With your help

With your help and support we can expand our program to include more villages and help even more women and girls improve their own and their communities future.
