With this great initiative you can do something good for women in Afghanistan
Now that the Taliban has seized power in Afghanistan, the fear among women there is great - and rightly so. The extremist group is known to be very conservative: during their rule in the late 1990s, for example, girls were not allowed to go to school and women were not allowed to work outside the home. That these times are now revived is something that concerns us. That is why we are launching this great initiative for everyone who wants to do something for the women in Afghanistan.
There are, of course, various charities to which you can donate money in order to support the population in Afghanistan, but if you specifically want to support vulnerable minorities (such as women and children) in, for example, war zones, uptodogood.nl sells beautiful bags designed by Dutch designer Carole Baijings. Prices range from €16.95 to €79.00 and part of the proceeds will go to Human Rights Watch. This is an independent organisation that investigates and reports on abuse in all corners of the world. By buying a nice pouch or totebag you can contribute to the organisation.
