Next week in Kingston, Dr. Sharifa Sharif will be an honoured guest at the Gala for Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. Copies of her memoir, On the Edge of Being will be available. As a member-based, not-for-profit organization founded in 1996 with thirteen volunteer chapters across Canada, CW4WAfghan is a non-religious, non-political, federally registered charity in Canada that has advanced education and educational opportunities for Afghan women and their families and educated Canadians about human rights in Afghanistan. You can read about what this great organization does, and ways that you can assist, here.
The night will highlight what Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan – Kingston has recently established: a Shafia Memorial education grant for Afghan women. To find out more about ways to donate, check out the C4WA-Shafia Fund notice.
