University Women Helping Afghan Women (UWHAW)

About Us

Welcome to University Women Helping Afghan Women (UWHAW). We are a group of CFUW-Ottawa members who are committed to supporting education for women in Afghanistan. We meet monthly (in-person and by Zoom) to hear speakers talk on a broad range of topics related to Afghanistan. We also organize fundraising events and advocate to increase awareness of, and help improve, the lives of Afghan women in Afghanistan.

Despite the challenges that have arisen with the takeover of the country by the Taliban, we are continuing to support the women in Afghanistan with their education.

Our Guiding Principles

We aim to support education and human rights for Afghan women by focusing on three guiding principles:

  • To continue to learn about the realities of life in Afghanistan, and the ongoing challenges that face the women and girls,

  • To raise awareness of such locally, nationally, and internationally, and to advocate for their rights, and

  • To support these women and girls in Afghanistan as we can with special emphasis on their tertiary education.
