AHA Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded by women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The AHA Foundation is the leading organization working to end honor violence that shames, hurts or kills thousands of women and girls in the US each year, and puts millions more at risk. The organization also works to elevate the status of women and girls globally, so they can create peace and prosperity for themselves, their communities and the world.

Why Support the AHA Foundation

The work of the AHA Foundation is more relevant and critical than ever. Global events point to horrifying accounts of culturally-motivated abuse and murder of women and girls around the world. In the US, the number of women and girls suffering from honor violence, coercion and oppression is rising at an alarming rate.



“I don’t see how anyone who believes in the rule of law
and the rights of women could do anything other than support efforts
to end female-genital mutilation, forced marriage and honor killings - practices
that have no place in the 21st century.”


Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google and human rights activist

    With girls at risk in Massachusetts, we felt it was key to have state legislation as one of the many tools needed to fight female genital mutilation. The AHA Foundation has been a significant resource and guide in helping us navigate the process.

    Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for the way the AHA Foundation helped one of my patients, a pregnant teenager at risk of honor violence. The AHA Foundation quickly stepped in to help my patient escape her dangerous home.

    A year ago, I reached out to the AHA Foundation for assistance. I wanted a better life for myself, and a bright future with endless possibiity. An end to the crippling of the culture I was born into. Today, I am living my dreams: a free human being who can choose her own lifestyle. Thank you.

    Thank you… I appreciate the help I have received and I am truly grateful that people like you exist and are willing to help a complete stranger. Maybe one day I can do something like this too!
