Engaging in your own fundraising initiative to benefit Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation can be an educational and transformative project for your school or organization. We believe that by learning about our students at the Zabuli Education Center and the Razia Jan Institute, and understanding the context and history of Afghanistan, Americans and other Western citizens can close the gap that divides many of us from those in the Middle East. It is the sense of connection that dissolves borders and preconceptions — and changes lives.
When one group of people comes together to help another group of individuals, our commonalities rise to the surface and change is affected on a global scale. Won’t you join us in redefining what’s possible?
To support your fundraising efforts, we’ve provided a selection of resources and fundraising ideas to get you started. As educational context is an important element in successful fundraising work, we created an introduction to Afghanistan and its people in our About Afghanistan section. You can access PDF fact sheets and a recommended reading list to aid in your efforts. We’ve created video stories and an image gallery for use in your fundraising work.
We also have free standards-based curricula for use in studying Razia's Ray of Hope: One Girl's Dream of an Education.
Please contact us if you would like to use the foundation’s logo or letterhead in your fundraising materials. Let us know if you need further guidance. Thank you for your help — and, on behalf of the girls and women of Afghanistan, your hope.
