Women for AfghanWomen (WAW), a grassroots, civil society organization dedicated to securing and protecting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York, is hosting a fundraising gala, Spirit Indestructible, Afghanistan Moving Forward, this May that commemorates WAW’s 14th Anniversary.
This year, the gala will host keynote speaker Rula Ghani, the First Lady of Afghanistan, along with outstanding female leader and activist, Tina Brown.
Guests will be treated to traditional Afghan dances and have the ability to bid on incredible prizes in both the live and silent auctions, including an all-inclusive guided trip to Afghanistan to visit WAW’s facilities, a Food Network chef’s tasting, along with a private lunch with author and activist Dr. Cornel West.
