When & Where
Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan-Edmonton Chapter
Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan is a volunteer not-for-profit organization founded in 1996 with over fifteen chapters and affiliated groups across Canada. The goals are to raise funds for health and education programs for women and girls in Afghanistan, and to raise awareness in Canada of the need to secure and protect human rights for Afghan women.
CW4WAfghan is a registered Charity (#887718203RR0001); registered with Industry Canada as a non-profit corporation under business number 415380-4, and registered under the Alberta Charities Act Licence #309874.
100% of the funds received from Canadian donors are directed to programs in Afghanistan aimed at providing higher quality education, particularly for Afghan women and girls. There are no administration/overhead costs deducted and our goal is to raise a minimum of $200,000 per annum.
Our projects in Afghanistan are managed mainly by Afghan women’s grassroots organizations and monitored and evaluated by our Kabul office and board of directors. The projects share the goals of assisting Afghan women in their struggles to end their oppression, to improve conditions of human rights, and to contribute as active members in Afghan society.
