The Omid-E-Mirmun Orphanage was established by the Afghan Women’s Organization in 2004 in Kabul, Afghanistan with the support of Canadian Women for Women of Afghanistan. This Orphanage provides shelter and basic needs for approximately 30 girls between the ages of 3 to 17 years-old. The girls have a safe and comfortable home, access to schooling and extra-curricular activities, as well as emotional support and care from the dedicated staff. We are thankful for the generous funding from Canadian Women for Women of Afghanistan, and other friends and supporters for making it possible for this project to continue and grow in its success.
