The project aimed at the empowerment of Afghan women and their social inclusion into UK society. The project will promote equality and social inclusion of Afghan women. The project will provide a platform for Afghan women to raise their profile and to highlight their issues and concerns and to provide opportunities for women to actively participate in social, political, economic and cultural activities.

The Women group leader will recruit volunteers to help with facilitating meetings, social events and specific activities in addition to provision of general advice, information and practical help and support to vulnerable Afghan women during the lifespan of the project, aimed at empowering women to overcome barriers and to lead an independent and fulfilling life.

The project will encourage women to participate in English classes, training sessions, volunteering and work-placement opportunities. The project will enable women to join a wide range of activities and social groups, including; music, netting, baking, fitness, cooking, painting and sport. In order to encourage a shared sense of belonging and to facilitate integration.

They will facilitate events aimed at promoting fundamental British values of individual liberty, women’s rights and equality. The women group leaders will work with women organisations on different issues including domestic violence, share good practice on how to deal with these issues. They will establish referral mechanisms and pathways for Afghan women to seek professional advice and support, in a culturally appropriate fashion.
