Mahboba's Promise started work in Afghanistan in 2002. In the beginning the need for basic welfare services was paramount, however by 2008, 70% of Mahboba’s Promise work in Afghanistan was in development projects, education, vocational training and securing clean water for communities.
Mahboba’s Promise is non-profit organisation dedicated through action to restoring faith in the future for the people of Afghanistan. Driven by the vision of one Australian woman, Mahboba Rawi, a former refugee from Afghanistan the organisation builds and runs orphanages, schools and clinics and helps to feed, clothe and educate hundreds of Afghan widows and orphans. The work of Mahboba’s Promise brings hope to people ravaged by years of war.
