Minority Canadians have specific barriers and needs that require tailored solutions. Afghan women, in particular Hazaras, in Afghanistan and Canada face multi-layered systemic discriminations such as disproportionate access to education, employment, and health services. Hazara Women Organization was created by Hazara women due to the apparent need of promoting social, political, and economic inclusion of women in Canada and abroad.
Hazara Women Organization is certified as a Not-For-Profit Organization by Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act. HWO as per it’s mission statement is currently active in it’s advocacy, private sponsorship, and settlement of vulnerable Afghans.
