Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan

  • CW4WAfghan goals are: to advance education for Afghan women and girls, and to engage Canadians as global citizens.

  • Now more than ever your support does matter.... her life and to yours.

  • Literacy students are encouraged to borrow books and take them home where family members can also be exposed to reading. Integrated into our literacy classes is a life skills curriculum covering health and first aid, hygiene, nutrition, child development and human rights among other topics.

  • Through our Technology for Education program, we have connected teachers with educational materials housed in our Darakht-e Danesh Library, a digital repository of open educational resources (OER) in Afghan languages

  • CW4WAfghan equips schools with Library Starter Kits and Science Lab Starter Kits, bringing the magic of science into classrooms with hands-on learning through microscopes and skeletons, to beakers and prisms.

  • An investment in women and girls is an investment in global prosperity, and in our common future.

  • CW4WAfghan has trained nearly 10,000 teachers Afghanistan, helping them master their subject knowledge and learn new approaches to pedagogy like active learning methodology, as well as earning a credential as a certified teacher.
