[19 August 2021] As more and more women and girls in Afghanistan are fearing for their lives and for their human right to have to have quality education (SDG 4), GWI is standing up to have their voices heard in the global space as we have already done for more than 100 years.
GWI desperately urge all governments and international agencies like UN, INESCO, UNICEF, WTO, ILO, World Bank and all others, directly or indirectly involved in this disastrous development for women and girls in Afghanistan, to combined their power and use all their means to prevent this human right violation, The women and girls from Afghanistan urgently need global support!
GWI will support them as much and we can with the means that are available to GWI’s global network, but it is up to the governments and international organisations to act together and act now!
Please approach your governments and al your contacts at international agencies to set them in motion.
