100% of proceeds from the Voices for Hope benefit are being donated to Canadian Women for Women of Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan), a registered charity and not-for-profit organization. Operating in Afghanistan since 1998, CW4WAfghan works in partnership with Afghan women and communities to advance human rights, gender equality and peacebuilding through access to quality education for women and girls. Since 2000, their impact includes:

  • More than 10,000 female teachers trained
  • Literacy classes for nearly 5,000 students
  • Distributed nearly 300 school library starter kits and 262 science labs kits
  • Established 40 community libraries
  • Provided access for over 1,000 female students to community schools
  • Shared thousands of resources through our Darakht-e Danesh Digital Library

During this crisis, CW4WAfghan is continuing to fulfill its mandate to promote the human rights of Afghan women and girls through access to education, while also responding to the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan by supporting at risk Afghans, distributing basic necessities to internally displaced people, and assisting with efforts to provide safe passage for refugees.

The situation in Afghanistan is volatile and ever-changing time, and on-the ground support and services must be approached in an agile and low-profile manner to ensure the safety and security of women supporting the work in Afghanistan. Having experience supporting women in Afghanistan during the previous Taliban regime, CW4WA remains 100% committed to doing everything possible to support the women still in Afghanistan through direct service.

 By purchasing a ticket to the Voices of Hope concert, you are showing women and girls in Afghanistan that despite the crumbling situation, there is a global siblinghood working to support and acknowledge their ongoing resilience and bravery.
