GiveBIG 2019!

GiveBIG 2019 is May 8th– and Sahar needs YOUR help!

GiveBIG is a one-day online giving event to raise funds for nonprofit organizations in Greater Seattle. It’s the opportunity for us all to come together and make the world a better place.

This year, we’ve set our goal to fundraise $3,500 to support education for girls in Afghanistan. Please help us reach our goal by donating $50.00 or more on our GiveBIG page, and by asking your family and friends to donate too!

Worried you may forget? Schedule your donation to secure your support!

Hear from Fresta, one of the instructors of our successful Early Marriage Prevention Program on the importance of empowering girls in Afghanistan through education:
“I am faced with powerful and brilliant girls who have big ambitions. However, they do not know how to problem-solve the issues they confront. Now they are learning to meet the challenges in their life– they keep defending their rights and fighting for gender equality. Working with EMPP girls makes me feel great.”
