2. Previous Function:
She started a small project of micro enterprise development for women in the small village of Ghazni and as result, 65 women benefited and are still benefiting even after AWSDC withdrawal.
In keeping with the growing ratio of violence against women and the lack of any facility to protect victims of violence, a shelter was established in April 2003 with the support of Norwegian church Aid (NCA). It is the first shelter of its kind and includes many types of help: psychological, legal, education and skill development for the victims in the shelter. Since the establishment of the shelter, 309 women and girls have sought refuge there and currently we have 22 beneficiaries with the rest of the women and girls having gone back after finding a solution to their situations.
