Afghans Empowered is a community-based organization on a mission to empower the future generations of Afghans worldwide. We connect Afghans around the world with resources available in their local communities, and advocate for our communities' voices to be represented in local and international spaces. We connect Afghans with community projects and initiatives that provide aid, assistance, and education to uplift those facing humanitarian crises, as well as support for under-resourced Afghan communities outside the motherland.
In addition to direct services, our organization promotes community dialogue and narrative work to engage Afghan communities in issues that affect our people; we believe the future of our generations and the homeland are rooted in the solutions proposed by our communities to achieve peace, security, human rights, social and economic integration, and community development for all Afghans. Whether you are a child of immigrants, an expatriate, citizen, or national, you deserve to have a voice and a space that recognizes your vision for your community, and connects you with equally and positively like-minded individuals whose heritage and family background has become the foundations for their strive to success.
As we gather together on a platform that connects us from far and near, we do so in respect to the millions of innocent and every-day Afghans who fight hard to survive amidst the turmoil of the social and political institutions of Afghanistan. We also gather to learn about the unique individuals currently living in Afghanistan who have played a substantial role in the social, economic, and political development in Afghanistan, sharing their fight for self determination, and self expression in a society that needs to heal from its wounds.
Connect Afghans worldwide with resources that support their social, economic, and human rights; promote community narrative building for Afghans to participate in their collective dreams for a better future.
Uplift Afghan voices to promote awareness of social issues affecting our communities, and create community partnerships to empower Afghans through dialogue and outreach.
