Create a Safer World

 

Twenty years ago, the tragic events of 9/11 changed the world and took the lives of some 3,000 people. Amid the heartache, a group of friends and family who lost loved ones started the Safer World Fund with the vision of creating a more peaceful and equitable world. The Fund promotes education, health care, and economic opportunity, especially for women and girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

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

Donations to the Safer World Fund and its beneficiaries are matched 50%-100% during the annual campaign.  For more details, please read the full terms and conditions.

Fast Track Education for Afghan Women and Girls
Educating females is the best way to accelerate equality in society for women and girls. Many female refugees lose out on education when they are displaced, either to a foreign country or internally in Afghanistan. We provide fast track classes in literacy, mobile literacy (learning through texting), tailoring, computing, English and other subjects to thousands of women and girls. Many of our students are former refugees, returned from Iran or Pakistan or internally displaced persons.
Grow Peace in Afghanistan: Educate Women & Girls
For 20 years, AAE used an accelerated education approach to assist, over 2500 women and girls, who didn't have access to formal education system due to age or marital status, to earn their high school diploma and to participate as an active member of the society. Now, under the Taliban rule, we're adapting to educate students safely by providing educational materials and supporting community-based classrooms.
Send 60 Girls in Pakistan to School
This project supports secondary education for 60 girls in various Pakistani villages. In our role as a pass through organization and partner of Bedari, a nonprofit based in Pakistan, we cover the costs associated with safely transporting girls from their homes in remote villages to their schools.
Educate a Girl in Pakistan & Give Her a Future
Provide education to a girl and give her the ability to transform her life, enter the workforce, and have a voice. $100 (+ GlobalGiving fees) covers the entire education of one girl at a partner institute). Join us in not only educating 1 girl, but 1000! We have just completed 1000 girls in Karachi successfully and 250 in Lahore. Your donation will go toward educating girls in Lahore, Pakistan. We are also working toward girls in Hyderabad, Pakistan as well as Balochistan, Pakistan.
Save Afghan Women & Children with Health Care
In Afghanistan, we run medical clinics, mobile units and Community Health Worker posts reaching 16,000 patients (65-70% female) each month in rural or poor urban areas. These clinic services are the only medical option for tens of thousands of people, providing treatment for injury and illness, preventive care, health education, reproductive health care, vaccinations and nutrition services. Only healthy people can work or study and properly take care of their families.
Transform Pakistan's under-resourced Girls Schools
This project is transforming two under-resourced government schools in Karachi into model institutions of learning. Our interventions involve upgrades in infrastructure, governance, administration, teacher professional development, academic innovation & tracking and a rich menu of extra-curricular activities. Based on the successes here we advocate for education reform through policy change and legislation, impacting 3200 girls directly & thousands more in public schools all over.
Afghanistan Emergency Fund
Across Afghanistan, thousands of civilians have been killed and hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. With the Taliban now in power, families, communities, and livelihoods are more threatened than ever. GlobalGiving is working closely with our partners on the ground to get emergency support to people in Afghanistan and those fleeing the country. Your donation will go to vetted nonprofits working in the region, as well as those working to help Afghan refugees.
Life for 200 at-risk unborn babies in Pakistan
This project aims safe child-birth at our hospitals, of 200 women living in urban slums of Lahore and at risk of maternal and infant mortality by unskilled birth attendants.
Help schools, victims of terror attacks and IDPs
This project will help victims of terrorist attacks and vulnerable populations at risk of famine due to collapse of the Afghan government. Following recent school terror attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, we will provide assistance to the families of victims and scholarships to the traumatized students. We will provide support to the internally displaced, particularly women leaders, journalists, and refugees in neighboring countries with cash assistance for food, shelter and basic necessities.
Save Maternal and Infant Lives in Pakistan
This zakat-eligible project supports maternal and infant health for poor villagers and urban slum dwellers within Pakistan. Pakistan has the highest Infant Mortality Rate in the World and also accounts for 28 percent of the global Maternal Mortality Rate. 80 percent of Pakistan's infant deaths and over 33 percent of its maternal deaths are preventable - join the fight to save lives by sponsoring maternal and infant health within the HOPE USA hospital network!
