For Mothers and Daughters Everywhere

reproductive counseling in Herat and Balkh

Amazing changes are taking place in Afghanistan and Pakistan, thanks to your support of the projects in The Safer World Fund. In rural Afghanistan, a school for girls and boys now boasts four new classrooms and many new desks as well as transportation so that teachers can attend training. In Mazar-i-Sharif, a school for 3000 girls has a new computer center, a reinforced roof, and an enhanced security wall. In Herat and Balkh provinces, ten wives of religious leaders have been trained and are currently dispensing information and providing counseling about family planning and reproductive health in their communities.

But continued progress is not guaranteed going forward as the security situation across the region remains unsettled. Girls and women in particular need our continued support as they learn to help their families and their communities. As Mother’s Day approaches, consider honoring the special mother or daughter in your life with a donation to help girls and women in another part of the world with education, medical care, and training. Donations up to $2000 are still matched at 50 percent.

To make it extra easy to honor a special person, the folks at GlobalGiving have developed Gift Cards to let you give the gift of giving. The recipient gets to pick the projects that they want to support and then see how their money has been put to work through regular updates from the field. Buy email gift cards, print-at-home gift cards, or biodegradable gift cards, and don’t be shy about mentioning The Safer World Fund!
