  • Mission statement

    PAWA is focused on a single purpose: To support teenage girls education in Asia.

    Schooling and skill training is a precondition for a woman to enter the workforce as a wage earner and contribute to her family, her community and her society more productively. 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 inevitably affects the prosperity of society as a whole.

    PAWA’s projects are proposed by our international network of supporters. All proposals are carefully vetted and checked by the PAWA Charity team following strict guidelines before a selection process by its Trustees. Selected projects are carefully monitored by PAWA’s Charity team and visited by its supporters.
