Two independent organisations work under the name NAZO: Cooperation of Afghan Women, founded in Kabul in May 2002 and NAZO Deutschland – Hilfe für afghanische Frauen, a non profit making organisation founded in Germany in January 2003. NAZO Deutschland raises funds needed by NAZO Afghanistan to carry out each of its projects on the spot in a professional way.

The organisation in Afghanistan had to change its name. It is now called AFGHAN LUMINOUS SUN - NAZO Professional Cooperation Center for Afghan Women – ALS for short.
