This July 2-8, support #AfghanWomen
As delegates from around the world meet in Tokyo July 8-9 to discuss the way forward in Afghanistan, we will use twitter to highlight the needs and voices of Afghan women.
Marking the 10 year anniversary of the Afghanistan Recovery and Reconstruction Conference that took place in Tokyo during January 2002, “international organizations and others will re-convene in the same city to pledge assistance to Afghanistan for the remainder of the transition process and beyond 2014.”
This conference might be the first in Tokyo in a decade, but it is the
second major international conference on Afghanistan in the last 6 months.
