My Voice to My Home

Project Description

The Asfari Institute, in collaboration with FEMENA, undertook a project to amplify the voices of Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) in Afghanistan. Despite decades of conflict and oppression, Afghan women continued to fight for their rights, especially in the wake of the Taliban’s return in 2021. The project aimed to provide a platform for WHRDs to connect with young Afghan students at the American University of Beirut. By sharing their experiences and perspectives, WHRDs hoped to raise awareness, advocate for the protection of women’s rights, and demand inclusion in peace talks and political decisions. The project sought to empower Afghan women to shape their own future and inspire global solidarity for their cause.
