‘Mahboba’s Promise’ talk by Mahboba Rawi
7pm, Sunday 23 March 2014 
Chapel by the Sea, 95 Roscoe St Bondi Beach

Mahboba Rawi has experienced the chaos conflict in Afghanistan has brought upon the country and people. She herself was forced to flee Kabul after leading a student protest.Now living in Australia, Mahboba has spent the last 16 years working to provide a sustainable future within a secure environment for disadvantaged Afghan women and children. There is an astonishing number of widows and orphans in Afghanistan without resources or education as a result of the conflict. Mahboba’s Promise, an organisation she founded, aims to educate Afghan women and children on literacy, vocational training, life skills and their rights.
Mahboba’s Promise is an Australian non-profit organisation dedicated to helping the women and children of Afghanistan. After decades of turmoil and conflict, the challenges remain formidable. Health statistics are harrowing, poverty and insecurity are deeply entrenched. Half the children in Afghanistan still do not go to school and the literacy rate today is one of the lowest among developing countries. Current projects work with Afghani woman and children to empower them to increase their wellbeing.
