Throughout 2011 and 2012 PWN was carrying out quite different sessions of advocacies, providing training to women in 34 provinces and arranging national women’s conferences around different issues. In the beginning of 2013, EPD managed to establish this women’s network in six other provinces (Kandahar, Nangarhar, Herat, Bamyan, Kunduz, Faryab and Bagrami District of Kabul Province).
To establish a coordination mechanism between women from all other fields who are working for women’s empowerment.
