Mahboba's Promise

Logo for Mahboba's Promise

Mahboba’s Promise is a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing a sustainable future to vulnerable women and children in Afghanistan, surrounding regions, and Australia.

The organisation has been in operation for 25 years, committed to building a prosperous future for marginalised women, children, widows and orphans. More recently the organisation has also pivoted to provide specialised support to the growing cohort of refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan and surrounding regions here in Sydney.

Through connections with communities in Afghanistan, we have delivered critical humanitarian aid during crises and driven long-term sustainable change through a range of programs including four orphanages across rural provinces in Afghanistan, outreach programs, schools and education programs, healthcare clinics, micro-businesses, agricultural skills building projects and women empowerment initiatives. To date our work has positively impact over 1.6 million people.

Join us on our mission to empower women and children to learn, grow, make their voices heard and reach their full potential.
