Expand and supply a school for 3,000+ Afghan girls
Today, October 7, 2011, marks the 10th anniversary of the start of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. We’re marking this moment by thanking you for supporting grassroots development, education, and medical work in Afghanistan and Pakistan through the Safer World Fund.
We are grateful for your support, and we can assure you that your donations, (which have been matched at 50% if you gave on or after September 11, 2011) will soon be put to work through important projects like this one:
Expand And Supply A School For 3,000+ Afghan Girls is a project run by Ayni Education International. Some of the Safer World Funds will outfit a new school building with desks, fans, and other necessary supplies in order to serve the nearly 4,000 girls who will now have a chance to learn.
Recently, the founder of Ayni Education International asked one girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. The girl’s answer was remarkable; “A doctor, of course.”
Thank you for giving these girls the opportunity to learn and thrive in Afghanistan. After all, many of these girls will someday become mothers, and we believe that educated, healthy mothers are more likely to raise sons who will build rather than destroy.
Thank you again for your generosity.
p.s. would you please consider telling a friend about the Safer World Fund today? We’re still matching all donations at 50%, allowing your money to go even further towards peace-building efforts in the Middle East.
