Happy International Women’s Day World!
In recognition of women’s struggles and accomplishments around the world, we have invited NELOFER PAZIRA, award-winning Afghan-Canadian Filmmaker, Director, Writer, Journalist and Human Rights Activist, for a meet and greet from 3 to 4pm today.
Nelofer is the founder of The Dyana Afghan Women’s Fund (http://dawf.ca/). DAWF provides basic education and skills-training classes for women and girls denied these opportunities during years of continued conflict.
Join us between 3 and 4 pm today for an intimate gathering with Nelofer. For every $5 donation to DAWF we’re offering a complimentary small gelato.
If you aren’t able to attend today’s event, please consider making a donation to the Dyana Afghan Women’s Fund by visiting http://dawf.ca/. It costs around $25 a month to provide one woman or girl with basic literacy skills. It costs approximately $750 to provide her with a complete five-level course to give her the skills she requires to improve the quality of her own life and that of her family.
Let’s use this day to reflect on the lives of others and see if, together, we can change the life of even just one women. Let’s be the ripple in the pond!
