Today we're looking back to our very first built project, Hope House in Afghanistan.
From 2005-2007 AWF worked with Mahboba's Promise and Tomaszewski Associates to build a Children's Home in Kabul to provide much-needed shelter and care for children left orphaned by conflict.
Mahboba’s Promise, founded by Mahboba Rawi in 1998, is an Australian Aid Organisation dedicated to supporting disadvantaged women and children of Afghanistan. Mahboba was an Afghan refugee who experienced first-hand the effects of a country torn apart by years of war and civil unrest. She is now an Australian citizen and continues to help rebuild Afghanistan through meeting the needs of women and children through development projects.
