Create a Safer World – Fight Terrorism Through Giving

The Safer World Fund (formerly the philanthropic arm of Our Voices Together) began as a response of family and friends of loved ones killed in the terrorist acts of 9/11. It is now engaging many people who recognize how individuals can help fight terrorism. By supporting basic education, vocational training, and health care, these projects offer opportunities to impoverished people in the poorest areas of the world, especially girls and women.

Give today to the Safer World Fund, or to one of the individual projects supported by the Fund.

The Safer World Fund
The Safer World Fund was created by three people who lost loved ones during the 9/11 terrorist acts in 2001. Rather than respond to the tragedy with anger, the founders chose to honor 9/11 victims by helping the people of Afghanistan. The Fund promotes education, health care and economic opportunity to counter the sway of extremists and terrorist tactics.
