PAWA Focuses On A Single Purpose : To Support Underprivileged Teenage Girls’ Education In Asia.
PAWA is a UK-registered charity since 2009 and is 100% managed by committed volunteers from a range of professions. PAWA raises funds and supports small grassroots charitable projects that empower girls through education.
Educating teenage girls is critical to fighting poverty. Schooling is a precondition for girls and women to take a stance against injustice and be integrated into society and the economy. Gender equality is not only a moral and human rights issue, but the key to sustainable socio-economic development. Exclusion of women from economic life affects the prosperity of society as a whole.
PAWA’s remit is across Asia and in any given year, we are active in several countries. This year, we are supporting girls in 7 countries.
The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has 17 goals; PAWA’s projects directly help realise the first five, and have an impact on all.
In 2023 PAWA will be supporting 11 projects and over 2190 girls in 7 countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, and Thailand.
