Congratulations on International Women’s day – Empower women!

Every March 8th half of the world celebrates International Women’s Day. The equivalent to Mother’s Day, March 8th is a celebration of the role of women in our society. It is also a celebration of spring and new beginnings.

Arzuw is keen on women's empowerment in Central Asia. We have held a first student-led conference “Women and Globalization” in 2012 with participation of young women from all around Central Asia including Afghanistan. During the 2013 alumni reunion we have screened the “Girl’s Rising” movie and continue to stress the role of women in daily changes that occur in our community.

Arzuw urges its alumni, volunteers and friends to help us promote education for girls around the world and empower young women of Central Asia.

Meanwhile, have a look at this inspirational video of Girl Rising.
