The Afghan Women’s Writing Project is doing good, good work. It is giving young Afghan women an outlet for telling their stories–important stories that would not otherwise be heard.
Those women need our help. As program founder Masha Hamilton writes on the AWWP website:
“Many of our students and women writers, especially outside of Kabul, cannot get to an Internet cafe due to security considerations. A laptop at home and a jump drive would allow them to write their pieces, and then ask a male relative to send the work at an Internet cafe. A $20 donation will buy a flash drive and $500 in donations will buy a laptop for our women writers. No contribution is too small.”
