IKWRO was founded (as the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation) in 2002 by our Executive Director, Diana Nammi. Since our foundation, as testament to the success of our work and in response to the need for culturally specific support, advocacy and counselling for women from the Middle East and Afghanistan, our services have been extended to several vulnerable communities in the United Kingdom.

IKWRO’s mission is to protect Middle Eastern and Afghan women and girls who are at risk of  ‘honour’ based violence, forced marriage, child marriage, female genital mutilation and domestic violence and to promote their rights.

We provide direct services for women and girls, including advocacy, training and counselling. We also provide advice and support to professionals from bodies such as the police, social services and schools to help them to understand issues affecting minority ethnic women and we campaign for better laws and their effective implementation as well as for appropriate resources to uphold the rights of women and girls and ensure their safety.
