Afghanistan governed by the rule of


We are women-founded and women-led. We are independent, non-partisan, non-political and non-sectarian.

Our core service is to support and empower

women, girls and marginalized groups who are

affected by war and other forms of violence. We

do this by providing them with legal aid, peer support networks, mediation, protection assistance and essential psychosocial services.

In addition, to bridge the gap left after the brain drain in Afghanistan, we are

building the next generation of women to provide such services to women in the community. We do this through multiple advance practical trainings  and fellowships for young students and graduates of law and sharia faculties.

In March 2021, WJO won a national award for its groundbreaking work.

We are raising the next generation of women civil society leaders and lawyers!
