Kafka Welfare Organization (KWO) is a youth-led peacebuilding organisation working for a peaceful and democratic Pakistan. It was established in 2010 by a group of young people who were committed to the development and empowerment of socially disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in Pakistan and addressing violence against women and gender-based discrimination.

KWO-1

KWO hosts an annual "Youth Peace Summit" which provides young people in Pakistan with a platform to discuss national challenges towards education and peace, and acknowledges the contribution of young leaders and civil society organisations to youth development, education, human rights, peace and harmony in the country.
