About Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan:
Founded in 1996, Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CWWA) works to alleviate conditions of poverty in Afghanistan through programs that advance education and educational opportunities for women in Afghanistan and their families, and to educate and increase the understanding of Canadians about human rights in Afghanistan.
Examples of activities of its programs include: paying salaries for teachers at a number of community schools; paying for teacher trainers; setting up education resources such as a virtual library, community libraries and women's resource centres; and running educational programmes such as English, computer and literacy classes. CWWA also imports hand-crafted Afghan products for sale in Canada, which provides educational and economic opportunities to previously unemployed and unskilled Afghan women through fair trade wages and skills development.
Since 2008, it has trained over 5,000 teachers and provided 202 library starter kits with 500 books each to schools in rural areas. In 2014, it funded two schools for orphaned children and children of widows with a total of 612 students; provided reading and writing classes for 539 women; distributed 36 science kits with over 200 items each; and held six Teachers’ Best Practices Exhibitions; among others. In Canada, CWWA conducted awareness presentations throughout the country, held a symposium on education in Afghanistan, and created resource materials about education in Afghanistan for teachers and the public.
CWWA’s administrative costs are 2% of revenues. It has not reported any fundraising costs. It has funding reserves of $1.4m, which cover annual program costs 1.6 times. CWWA has indicated that it has no compensation costs for any of its reporting years.
