PARSA: CW4WAfghan contributes an annual grant towards PARSA’s mission to train and develop professional Afghan leaders by providing innovative and effective programs in education, economic development, psychosocial training and healthcare serving Afghan women, children, impoverished families and the disabled population.








Hoopoe books uncover the ancient and wonderful world of oral and written storytelling from a time before societies had formal schools when stories were the way in which everyone learned the much-needed universal lessons of tolerance and appreciation of all cultures. Through these stories the children of today can develop an understanding of the universality of our natures, our hopes and dreams and an appreciation of the diverse ways in which they are expressed.





CW4WAfghan is pleased to support the School for the Kabul Blind School with funds to print Braille books in Afghan languages for students, partnering with the Afghan Girls Financial Assistance Fund Organization (AGFAF), which is also contributing in-kind support to this project.
