Our Initiative

MISSION STATEMENT:

The pillars of security, education and sustainability provide the foundation of WEL’s mission. Key elements within these pillars resonate within every human being, and it is every person’s fundamental right to be seen, heard, and provided with basic human rights. Below, WEL outlines their goals within these pillars as being

1. SECURITY:

TO PAVE THE WAY FORWARD FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN, CREATING A SECURE ENVIRONMENT, BUILDING EDUCATION

Women Empowerment & Leadership prioritizes the development of safe environments for women and children. WEL’s projects focus on the creation of safe spaces for women to be heard, and for children to express themselves in a positive and healthy way. Given that women empowerment is a pivotal part of equality in today’s society, WEL develops relationships and partnerships with organizations and individuals that share this passion for security in the 21st Century. It is vital that communities are provided with areas that allow them to grow, free from persecution or discrimination regardless of race, age, disability or gender. Key areas of concern are domestic family violence, child marriage, and women and children trafficking.

2. EDUCATION:

TO SUPPORT, ENCOURAGE, EDUCATE WOMEN IN POWER

Providing accessible and affordable education for women is at the forefront of WEL’s core mission. It has been Rita Anwari’s long-term goal to provide this opportunity to as many women as possible. As WEL has been created by women for women, the emphasis is placed on providing opportunities for women to become empowered through education. For WEL to achieve this goal they often collaborate with universities and other institutions in order to support women from Afghanistan in their education. By supporting women in their studies WEL is able to assist women in achieving aspirations that they would not have been able to accomplish in their individual circumstances.

3. SUSTAINABILITY:

TO DEVELOP WOMEN WITH A TEAM OF DIVERSE YOUTH AND PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANISATIONS

Afghanistan and the wider global community desperately need a sustainable approach to development and education models. For this goal to be realised, WEL communicates with advisors and experts in a range of fields; including management, education, and government sectors. Rita Anwari works with a team of diverse youth in order to foster an atmosphere of growth and acceptance; as well as train and arm the team with the tools of development. WEL adopts a long-term approach to their projects.

We are supporting girls to educate by sending them 100$ a month to have their food and clean water
