Afghan Women Project Facts:

  • Our focus on New Jersey and beyond: 
    As of Feb. 2, the U.S. had welcomed
     
    more than 76,000 people through Operation Allies Welcome, the federal effort to resettle Afghans, according to the State Department. About 68,000 have moved into local communities with assistance from nine national resettlement agencies and their affiliates, including about 700 individuals in New Jersey. 

    Because agencies that typically would help dozens of people in a year suddenly are responsible for hundreds, NFBPWC stepped forward to lend a hand. And, after realizing there are no resources meant to help business and professional migrant women who arrive in the U.S., NFBPWC sought to fill that void in New Jersey and other places in the United States.
