Charity number


PAWA is a UK registered charity set up in 2009 to support teenage girls’ education in Asia. We are professionally managed by volunteers with minimum overheads. Participation is open to all - women and men, Asian and non-Asian, and we cover 32 countries and regions from Iran to Japan, Indonesia to Kazakhstan. We donate to grassroots projects in Asia where sterling goes a far longer way. Projects proposed by individual PAWA supporters are carefully vetted by the trustees. Donations are targeted at individual girls or specific programmes, and focus on the crucial teenage years. Each donation is followed up and feedback monitored. PAWA Benefactors and Friends are encouraged to visit when they are in Asia and send us comments. Since our inception PAWA funding has benefited over 7,000 girls across 16 projects in 10 Asian countries including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Phillipines, Bangladesh, China and Korea. Each year we continue to receive more worthy proposals than we are able to support. Modest amounts targeted properly, changes lives, and PAWA is doing this. We just wish we could do more.
