Who Are We?

#StudentsForAfghanistan

In 2019, University societies banded together and formed the Afghan Charity Week (ACW). We nominated a week in February where all University Afghan Societies would host fundraising events and the total sum raised towards our collaborative projective with our chosen charity. The charity week was a success and so this great cause continues this year. Here is a short video from our 2020 campaign.

About Us

Introducing our core participating universities for the 2024 year!

The 2024 Project

About Hayat orphanage

Founded in 2013, Hayat Orphanage delivers essential healthcare and education to over 100 children across Afghanistan. Their primary focus is on supporting orphans and children from vulnerable backgrounds, ensuring they have access to a safe environment for learning and growth.

ACW x Hayat collaboration

Our collaboration with Hayat is aimed at providing sustained education to children in Afghanistan. With your support and for only £60, we can educate a child with a year’s worth of extra-curricular learning. This comprehensive package includes teacher fees and necessary educational materials, empowering these young minds for a brighter and more promising future.

The 2023 Project

In 2023 we collaborated with Daanish Foundation UK. DFUK is an international humanitarian development organisation. They carry out various projects, which include supporting widows and orphans, building schools, emergency relief and much more.

With the incredible support of our community and the Danish foundation, we raised a total of £11,067.23. This money was used to build 2 electric water wells with pumps, bringing lasting water access to over 1000 families in Kabul.
