HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. BUY A VOICES FOR HOPE ORNAMENT
For every Voices for Hope 2022 bookshelf ornament purchased, $10 will be donated directly to the registered charity, Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, (CW4WAfghan).
The 2022 bookshelf ornament—an exclusive design by local company Dither & Etch—speaks to the importance of literacy and access to education for women and girls in supporting economic self-reliance and active engagement in social, political, and cultural life. Since 1998, CW4WAfghan has trained more than 10,000 teachers, provided literacy classes for nearly 5,000 students, distributed 300 school library starter kits and established 40 community libraries. The bookshelf is accented with a tulip, the national flower of Afghanistan.
Your donations will support CW4WAfghan's ongoing programs and response to the escalating needs to support vulnerable groups in Afghanistan in the following four impact areas:
Where the funds are needed most
Emergency support for at-risk Afghans
General Advocacy Fund
Program - Education
The YWCA of Metro Vancouver supports women and girls in Vancouver, including the delivery of an employment program for Afghan women, delivered in Pashto and Dari.
* Charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations.
