For more than twenty five years, with your help the efforts of Women to the World has
accomplished the following:
- Since 2002, Women to the World has maintained a presence in rural areas of Afghanistan
to provide emergency relief and secure distribution for the survival packets of food,
wood for heat, and plastic covering sealing off open buildings from the harsh Afghan winters.
In doing so, Women to the World has saved literally thousands of lives of the displaced citizens of Afghanistan,
who are the victims of war (returnees), after fleeing to Pakistan. This effort is far from being over, and amounts
to a humanitarian crisis of global importance.
- Established the Kabul Language and Technical Center. Women to the World is the sole source
of funding for this project, with more than 400 women enrolled for 2008. Our center received the TOEFL
accreditation award in July 2007. TOEFL certifies that women who have been trained in our center can
attend college courses in English in any university setting.

Although we are mostly autonomous today, past efforts of Women to the World partnerships with national women's groups have resulted in projects such as the following:
Women to the World efficiently helps needy women and children living in some of the most
difficult areas of the world. For example, following Tajikistan's civil war, Women to the World was one of the
first outside organizations to provide tangible assistance. While others were still assessing the problem,
Women to the World had already delivered two container loads of used clothing and medical supplies worth more
than $50,000 to suffering war widows and orphans.
