The Afghan's Women's Society is broken up into two groups.  The Sewing & Craft's Cooperative and the Support Society.   The purpose of the group is to promote equality and economic security for Afghan immigrant and refugee women.  Co-operative members govern and manage the enterprise which provides opportunities for them to work and learn together.  The majority of the members and beneficiaries of this project are either refugees and/or financially disadvantaged families.
