A conference dedicated to women in Afghanistan for our seventh anniversary

When the Taliban regained power in Afghanistan so swiftly last summer, we were very concerned by what was happening, especially to women. On August 19, 2021 we wrote on our Facebook page: "We cannot help but think about what is happening to Afghan women, their children, colleagues of many NGOs who in recent years have worked hard to make their lives dignified, guaranteeing their rights, education, access to microcredit, concrete job opportunities, autonomy and independence".

Months have passed and our focus on this situation has not diminished. On the occasion of the Foundation’s seventh anniversary we organized a conference called “Being a woman in Afghanistan. Reflections and stories of human rights denied".

We asked those who have been there for a long time to tell us about the situation of the Afghan people and women to those who have been in that country for a long time, those who have worked hard to give dignity and rights to the people who live there and those who have been forced to flee when the situation deteriorated.

“Being a woman in Afghanistan”: Conference Program

The conference will be held at Palazzo Trinci, Foligno, on Saturday, May 7th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. During the conference, the Mayor of Foligno, Stefano Zuccarini, the President of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation, Beatrice Baldaccini and the president of the ISCA Foundation, Leonardo Tricarico will take the floor for greetings and welcome speeches.  

The speakers will be:

  • S.A.R. Princess Soraya of Afghanistan;
  • Dr. Frozan Nawabi, former Director General for Human Rights, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan (in English);
  • Daniel Papagni, photojournalist in war zones;
  • Dr. Arif Oryakhail, head of health programs of the Italian Development Cooperation Agency (Aics), connected from Islamabad;
  • Col. Mauro Bruschi, Army Officer on active duty;
  • Hon. Marina Sereni, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation;


The conference will be moderated by Dr. Maria Clara Mussa, journalist and founder of Cybernaua.it InformAction Magazine. The event is sponsored by the Municipality of Foligno.
