Honoring the Mothers in Our Lives – A Special Chance to Support Afghan Women!
We owe so much to our mothers. As you decide how to honor the special women in your lives, consider making a donation in their names to the Afghan Women’s Writing Project.
This month, we seek to raise $25,000. We are expanding our online English, Dari, and Pashto workshops. We are growing our operation within Afghanistan. Your donations help us help Afghan women speak for themselves. Your generosity helps us share their writings around the world!
For a donation of $100 or more, your honoree will receive special mention on the AWWP Honor Roll posted on our website. All May donors will be acknowledged on the website.
This week, several writers shared what AWWP means to them:
Since I took part in AWWP I’ve noticed positive changes in my life… for the first time I feel that I have right to speak out. —Sayara
For girls that like to become writer and writers, it is too hard to find an opportunity in Afghanistan to learn writing… and AWWP provide us a very good environment. I can say that AWWP is a need for me, because it is the only friend that I can share [my thoughts and feelings] with. —Humair
As I started writing, I become more creative with my writings; I read more books to write in a better way. I read the writers’ published poems or essays and then try to learn from them and write my own writings. This was unbelievable for my writing. The whole views and ideas I was writing in a paper changed because I joined AWWP. —Raha
Honor your mothers. Help Afghan women. You can do both by clicking here to make a donation. Go to the AWWP homepage to watch the thermometer rise!
