"On behalf of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, I extend hearty congratulations to our amazing founders! Janice and Carolyn courageously launched this work at a time when the Taliban were in full control; thanks to their vision and leadership, they created networks with Afghan women to covertly start the work of the organization by funding secret classes for girls in Afghanistan—50,000 of them over a number of years. Our projects and programs have expanded and flourished greatly since those early days, in no small part because Janice and Carolyn worked tirelessly and passionately to inspire hundreds of others across the country to join them in the mission of supporting Afghan girls and women."
~ Madeliene Tarasick, CW4WAfghan Board President

Congratulations Janice Eisenhauer and Carolyn Reicher!
