“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.
Afghanistan: A country of orphans
About two months ago I was in Afghanistan and while there I went to Mahboba’s Promise orphanages. The orphans were shy at first, quiet and curious they looked on to me as they handed me flowers. But in the span of just an hour, I was the center of their worlds.
