ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S RIGHTS
April 12, 2013

Alliance for International Women's Rights is a superb non-profit. It is set up to directly impact girls and women in Afghanistan by helping them learn English one-on-one with a teacher in the western world. It is a safe, effective, stream-lined model. Our world needs to do more to help girls and women, and this group is doing it, woman by woman. Thank you to all the volunteers who are making it happen.

ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S RIGHTS
March 22, 2011

This is an amazingly well-run, nicely organized non-profit set up to directly help girls and women in Afghanistan (and other east Asian countries) with one-on-one teaching experiences from Western women, all via the internet. It truly makes the other side of the world feel closer and more personal to know that a woman in the Western world can reach out and directly help a woman in the developing world. Educating women and girls is the key to world peace and each country's potential prosperity. Programs like this deserve more attention and support.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen how simply and efficiently this group works by having teachers in the US or Europe or Australia run one-on-one tutoring sessions over the internet, which is a safe and more risk-free way to reach women in countries where it may be risky for women and girls to go to school.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them more money and support! It's run almost entirely on ideas, idealism, and volunteer energy! This is a group of women trying to help other women to gain a better way of life.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I donate to this group, in hopes of helping them find more ESL teachers and helping them teach more women.
