U.S.- Afghan Women's Council

The U.S.-Afghan Women’s Council (USAWC) is a public-private partnership based at Georgetown University. The USAWC was founded in 2002. The Council is co-chaired by the President of Georgetown University and the U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues and by the Afghan Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Afghan Minister for Women and Children’s Affairs. Former First Lady of the United States Laura Bush and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton serve together as the Honorary Co-Chairs of the USAWC.

The Council uses its network to identify needs in Afghanistan, to convene interested partners to develop proposals, and to help broker connections for implementation. The Council also organizes training programs and capacity-building consultations for Afghan women traveling to the United States.

Council members are leaders in government, the private sector, and philanthropy who spearhead initiatives to advance opportunities for Afghan women and girls in the areas of literacy and education, entrepreneurship, political leadership, and health care. The Council also partners with a broad network of affinity groups around areas for collaboration.

The USAWC at Georgetown University mobilizes public and private sector resources to empower Afghan women and children.

The mission of the USAWC is to mobilize resources and encourage partnerships in support of Afghan women and children in the areas of education, health, economic empowerment, and leadership development.
