Vision and Mission

As he was being sworn in as President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on September 29, 2014/Mizan 7, 1393, H.E. Ashraf Ghani thanked his wife thus automatically underlining the establishment of Afghanistan’s First Lady Office. The decision for the Office to focus on social and non-political issues was based on the background of H.E. the First Lady and her previous work assisting IDPs (internally displaced people) and children working on the streets of Kabul. The office of H.E. the First Lady of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan was established in October 2014/Mizan 1393.


A prosperous Afghanistan where all Afghans, especially women, are respected regardless of ethnic background, gender, power or position.


To improve the provision of quality services to all vulnerable sections of the population through monitoring and facilitation.

Areas of Interest

A large portion of the Afghan population still lack the ability to meet their basic needs. Given the non-political nature of this office, our main areas of interest are:

  • professional training and capacity building
  • encouraging entrepreneurship and creativity among women and youth
  • securing access to quality health, education and legal services to all
  • promoting social peace and strengthening communities
