What We Do

Our Mission Is To support underprivileged teenage girls’ education in Asia

In the years since its foundation in 2009, PAWA has raised and granted nearly £430,000 to support 25 charitable projects that improve girls’ education in 12 countries. Through these projects, we have made quality education more attainable to over 14,000 girls and improved their life prospects.

We go beyond borders

PAWA raises funds through its supporters, donors, events and online campaigns.

PAWA aims to bring together individuals, trusts, foundations and corporations to help support a portfolio of small grassroots projects that empower women through education.

What We do

We are serious about project selections

Each year, charitable projects are proposed by PAWA’s international network of supporters.  All proposals are carefully vetted and checked by the PAWA Projects Committee following strict guidelines before presenting them to PAWA Trustees for the selection process.  Selected projects are carefully monitored by PAWA’s Projects Committee and are visited by its supporters throughout the year as opportunities arise.

What We do

Where the money goes

Since PAWA’s inception, its administrative expense ratio is less than 5%.  Over 95% of our income is donated to support underprivileged teenage girls’ education in Asia.
