Mahboba’s Promise was founded by Mahboba Rawi, an Afghan refugee and now an Australian citizen, who has experienced first-hand the effects of a country torn apart by years of war and civil unrest. Since 2001, Mahboba’s Promise has established schools, shelters and health clinics across Afghanistan and provided numerous sponsorships to widows and orphans in need.
With the recent upheaval in Afghanistan there is an urgent need to help the orphans and widows find secure and safe places to live.
In recognition of her tireless work, Mahboba Rawi OAM, has won the NSW Human Rights Medal! This is an incredible recognition of her dedication and hard work in making a difference for Afghan women and children.
We could not be prouder and inspired by this momentous achievement.
Mahboba has worked tirelessly to create a better future for Afghan women and children. Her inspiring dream resonates with us all: “I dream for Afghan women to be free and choose what they want to do, to go out without permission, to run their life the way they want, to work equally, to study, go for further education.”
We are so thankful that through her unwavering commitment and perseverance, she continues to bring hope and stability into the lives of Afghan women and children every day.
