Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan

Calgary Chapter 20 in 2020 Virtual Cooking Class and Fundraiser

You're invited by co-hosts Murwarid Ziayee & Behnoush Ahranjani to: 

Our Calgary Virtual Fundraiser! Gift of Education Virtual Cooking Class

As we countdown toward the end of a challenging 2020, we invite you to support our campaign 20 in 2020, as we look to support 20 young women in Afghanistan to reach their education goals.

The Afghanistan Reads! program of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan) supports literacy education, mentorship, provision of hygiene packages and library resources for women pursuing their education. Our fundraising goal of $8000 will provide these resources for 20 women for one year.

Help us give the gift of literacy by donating and/or attending our virtual event! This will be a fun lunch time activity to brighten your day and help others. If you can’t make the virtual cooking class, but support our goals, please consider still donating to this great cause.

Date: December 9, 2020
Time: 11:00 - 12:30pm MT

Our accomplished cook Afsaneh will demonstrate how to make an Iranian meal, Adas Polo, which is a traditional comfort food featuring lentils, rice and a choice of protein that can also be vegan and gluten free served with Tahdeeg, a crispy bread. Time permitting, we will also learn to make an appetizer.
