Beyond the 11th is a non-profit organization that provides support to widows in Afghanistan who have been affected by war, terrorism, and oppression.
We place a special emphasis on working with women and children, since socio-economic, cultural and legal conditions often favor men and exclude women and minors. Women can find themselves stripped of assets upon the dissolution of a marriage or the death of a spouse. Lack of access to property leaves many widows extremely vulnerable and trapped in an ever-deepening cycle of poverty and powerlessness.
Beyond the 11th’s grants are geared toward programs that help widows gain the skills necessary to generate their own income. We believe strongly that this is the best way to create lasting social change.
