All proceeds will be donated to Enabled Children Initiative. This charity week, 14 Afghan student societies across the UK have come together to work with Enabled Children Initiative. Money raised during ACW will fund Window of Hope, a sustainable care home for abandoned and orphaned children with disabilities. Donations will help provide in-home schooling, healthcare, recreational activities and more. ECI has a 100% donation policy meaning all proceeds fundraised during ACW will go to fund the needs of the children under ECI’s care. #studentsforafghanistan
