Summary

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 extremism and terrorist tactics.

Challenge

Education, health care, and economic opportunity counter the influence of extremists in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other countries by weakening their base of community support. Help us build a world in which the appeal of lives lived in dignity, opportunity, and hope triumphs over the allure of extremism.

Solution

The Fund's current focus is education, health, and development projects in Afghanistan and Pakistan, especially projects for girls and women. This will help build community support for marginalized groups and foster better connection and well-being for community members.

Long-Term Impact

Promotion of grass-roots development projects in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other countries allows the appeal of lives lived in dignity, opportunity, and hope to triumph over the allure of extremism.
