About Afghan Women Resource Center:
The Afghan Womenâ€™s Resource Center (AWRC) was founded by a group of over 80 educated Afghan women from various backgrounds, in August 1989. This was at a time when most relief work was being implemented by international organizations, and very few Afghan women participated in the process. The female refugee community began to realize that their real needs and interests could not be addressed, without their active participation in relief activities for women. This gave birth to the idea of an organization run by Afghan women to help Afghan women. From the very beginning, AWRC aimed at serving as a focal point of resources and information for Afghan women from all walks of life.
To raise public awareness of and create discussion around all aspects of electoral processes by supporting initiatives developed by Afghan communities and civil society nationwide.

This initiative is designed with the aim to increase the role of citizens and their understanding of the electoral and public decision making processes by endorsing and advocating for equal gender rights and accountability in democratic context.
