“While I live and breathe I will work tirelessly to protect, heal and educate the women and children of Afghanistan.” – Mahboba Rawi, Founder of Mahboba’s Promise.
What We Are
Mahboba’s Promise is an Australian non-profit organisation dedicated to the women and children of Afghanistan. Founded in 1998, Mahboba’s Promise began its mission by helping to care for Afghan refugees who had been forced into a refugee camp in Pakistan by a devastating earthquake in Takhar, Afghanistan.

This acclaimed documentary focuses on the work of Mahboba Rawi, the strong-willed Afghan-Australian woman and the founder of Mahboba’s Promise, who has dedicated her life to helping orphans and widows in Afghanistan.
Food Ladder Oasis for Afghan Women Project
$15,000 is what we need to set up a green house and hydroponic system to support the livelihoods of 30 widows.
This system will provide high-nutrient, high-yield produce that will be able to grow right through the year; a big plus for a region with daytime temperatures ranging from -5C to 40C.
