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 Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan’s programs include: paying salaries for teachers at community schools, paying for teacher trainers, setting up education resources such as a virtual library, community libraries and women's resource centers, and running educational programs 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 9,387 teachers and provided 240 library starter kits with 500 books each to schools in rural areas. In 2016, it funded two new teacher education programs in Kandahar and Herat, training 2,408 teachers, including 2,140 female teachers. Because of these teacher education programs, there was an average measured increase in teachers’ assessed knowledge by 52.4% in Kandahar, and 47.3% in Herat. 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.
Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan is a small-cap charity with donations and special events revenues of $827k in F2016. Its administrative costs are 2% of revenues, and the charity reports no fundraising costs. For every $1 donated to the charity, 98 cents go towards its programs, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. The charity’s funding reserves of $820k result in a program cost coverage ratio of 91%. This means that it can cover 11 months of its annual programs using its existing reserves. CWWA has indicated that it has no compensation costs for any of the past 3 years.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
