The Afghan Women Project

Leaving their country in just the clothes on their backs, displaced Afghan women are in the United States facing the intricacies of the American way of life:

   - our laws that can protect them, 
   - our customs that could mystify them, and 
   - our society which has been built in a crucible of active diversity.

NFBPWC stands with our newly minted American sisters!

Join us as we work to empower displaced Afghan women to continue to support themselves and achieve the many rights and dignities that all Americans enjoy today.
