About Mahboba's Promise
Who We Are
Mahboba's Promise is an Australian non-profit voluntary organisation dedicated to the women and children of Afghanistan. Mahboba's Promise was founded by Mahboba Rawi, herself a refugee from Afghanistan, now an Australian citizen.
How We Work
Being small and having Mahboba’s knowledge of the language and culture, the organisation has been able to respond quickly and with flexibility to meet the needs of widows and children disenfranchised by decades of war and civil unrest.
What We Do
We work with widows and children to improve education, offer vocational training and establish them as self sufficient. We have started schools for girls in areas where they had no educational opportunities. Primary health care in rural areas and provision of clean drinking water are among the many other projects undertaken over the last few years
