Our Grants and Scholarships program advances education by investing in partners and individuals who are making a difference. Our three major activities in this program include:

    1. The Shafia Fund: a scholarship initiative conceived by our supporters in Kingston, Ontario, launched in 2012, which provides scholarships to Afghan women in financial need pursuing higher education.
    2. Remote Communications Assistance: provision of devices (such as tablets) and connectivity packages for individuals and groups in need of hardware and internet for virtual learning.
    3. Small Grants: funding for solicited proposals from partner organizations in Afghanistan whose programming aligns with our objectives.
    4. Champion for Education Award: the annual Champion for Education in Afghanistan Award recognizes individuals, including CW4WAfghan members, as well as projects, programs and organizations that have given outstanding service to the cause of supporting education for girls or women in Afghanistan.
