Women for Peace and Participation (WPP) is a non-partisan and non-profit organization, which promotes the social and political inclusion of women and youth in peace building processes at the grassroots, national and global levels. WPP works directly with marginalized individuals in conflict-affected countries, and provides opportunities and platforms for women and youth to enable them to participate in decision-making processes and policy debates. In addition to working directly with women and youth, WPP also works with their relevant diaspora and refugee populations.
Building inclusive and peaceful societies through access to equal opportunities.
Women for Peace and Participation’s goal is to promote social inclusion and provide an opportunity for excluded groups of Afghan women and youth to shape the future of their country through participation in social and political processes.
Scope Of Work
To date, WPP has piloted most of the programs primarily with Afghan communities in insecure areas and relevant stakeholders.
Empower women and youth by building their capacities and skill-sets to engage in peacebuilding and peace-making processes.
As an organization, we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of our employees, members, and beneficiaries.
Country of Focus
The Women for Peace and Participation organization is activated in Kabul, Kandahar, Balkh, and Helmand provinces of Afghanistan.
Afghan women share their hopes and fears
In their own words, Afghan women call for women’s rights, inclusion in public life, urgent economic relief and for the international community to step in solidarity with them. Help women survivors of war heal from the trauma of war and build brighter futures for themselves and their families.
Help is Our Main Goal

When war and insecurity take hold, women bear the heaviest burden of violence, poverty and inequality.
Help women survivors of war heal from the trauma of war and build brighter futures for themselves and their families.
