TAWIF was founded by the team of women driven by urge to reduce vulnerability of their fellow women and children, and the problems attached to it, following deteriorating living conditions of the target groups each passing day. Unfortunately, these poor women and children are excluded from all the opportunities and in most cases they are considered as passive beneficiaries of any initiatives rather than drivers of change. The foundation kick started its operation in year 2000 and later on at 26th March 2005 it was registered as non-governmental organisation
