Profiles in Courage: Humaira Rasuli

Our Founder and Executive Director, Humaira Rasuli, has been honoured by the United States Government for her COURAGE as a woman human rights defender taking on some of the most complex cases in Afghanistan.

She is leading our team to fight for the rule of law and government accountability by selecting and driving specific cases to effect broader legal changes in Afghanistan. By doing so, she is driving changes that are firmly rooted in survivors' experience of justice.

"If we can unite, if we believe in our values and strengths, then, no one can silence us!"
