Nisaa FM was created as a joint initiative between the Womanity Foundation and the Nisaa for Broadcasting Radio Company. The Womanity Foundation is an independent private foundation established in 2005 and registered in Switzerland, Afghanistan, the UK and the USA (under the auspices of the King Baudouin Foundation USA). Womanity works to accelerate progress for women and their communities. It empowers girls and women to shape their own futures and contribute to their equal and full social, economic and political participation in society.

With its partners, Womanity ignites positive change through creating and supporting innovative ways to empower women and girls; in addition, the Foundation replicates and scales-up models of excellence to achieve greater gender equality.
