The Alliance for International Women's Rights (www.aiwr.org) is a non-profit organization with the mission of supporting women leaders and future women leaders in the developing world--with a current focus on Afghanistan and Nepal. AIWR believes in the rights and values outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Elimination of All Discrimination Against Women and the Beijing Platform for Action. These human rights instruments assert that "women's rights are human rights" and recognize the essential dignity and inherent rights of every person.
We believe that creating support for the empowerment of grassroots women's rights organizations is one of the most effective pathways for combating gender power imbalances and achieving lasting social change. Thus, AIWR is committed to creating a support network for women's rights organizations in developing countries, and to honoring the dignity, strength, insight and creativity of grassroots activists on the front lines of the human rights movement.
AIWR's long-distance Empowerment Programs take advantage of free Internet-based communication technology to help open the world to women in developing countries through long-distance volunteers. Volunteers in our English Program and Mentor Program use Skype and e-mail to meet long distance with women and girls in Afghanistan and Nepal to provide individual tutoring and mentoring. The exchanges that occur through this process help move women and girls toward their personal education or employment goals while also helping to bridge worlds and improve understanding between different cultures.
If you are an experienced English teacher who is interested in volunteer teaching or professional mentoring for AIWR, please visit their website or email them directly (Cathy Raymond, Executive Director) for more information. Due to security concerns for their Afghan participants, they are only able to accept female volunteers to all of their programs.
