BENEFITING: WOMEN FOR AFGHAN WOMEN INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014
Join us on Saturday, October 11, 2014 to commemorate International Day of the Girl Child. Honor the girls in your life and stand in solidarity with Afghan girls by walking or supporting this event!
Three ways to participate:
1) Register to walk with us in Brooklyn, NY by registering via our website. We will walk a total of 1 mile, partly across the Brooklyn Bridge!
2) Host your own walkathon! Contact us at email@example.com for support. Don't forget to start your own team here!
3) Donate and fundraise on this page!
All funds raised will go toward the empowerment and protection of Afghan girls and women through Women for Afghan Women's programs in Afghanistan and New York.
SHARE this Crowdrise page with family, friends, and colleagues to spread the word and raise money to SAVE the lives of Afghan girls like Sahar Gul, Gul Meena, and our recent 10-year-old rape client, who all would have died if it was not for the intervention of Women for Afghan Women.
WOMEN FOR AFGHAN WOMEN (WAW) IS A GRASSROOTS, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION dedicated to securing and protecting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York, particularly their rights to develop their individual potential, to self-determination, and to be represented in all areas of life: political, social, cultural and economic. We advocate for women’s rights and challenge the norms that underpin gender-based violence wherever opportunities arise to influence attitudes and bring about change.
