Who We Are

Where We Work

PAWA’s remit is across Asia and in any given year, we are active in several countries. This year, we are supporting girls in 7 countries.

About Us

PAWA focuses on a single purpose: To support underprivileged teenage girls’ education in Asia.

PAWA is a UK-registered charity and is managed by committed volunteers from a range of professions. PAWA raises funds and supports small grassroots charitable projects that empower girls through education.

Educating teenage girls is critical to fighting poverty. Schooling is a precondition for girls and women to take a stance against injustice and be integrated into society and the economy. 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 affects the prosperity of society as a whole.

The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has 17 goals; PAWA’s projects directly help realise the first five, and have an impact on all. 

  • Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
  • Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
