Day of the Girl (October 11)

A major obstacle to development in many vulnerable countries is that too many women and girls are unable to pursue their hopes and goals, hindered by discrimination and inequality. In Afghanistan, sports are generally male-dominated, but Fahima had a talent for cricket and longed for the chance to play. Presbyterian World Service & Development's Girls Education Program equips schools with sports equipment and leads awareness-raising sessions on the benefits of physical education for students' cognitive development. Fahima's school is participating in the program and now has sessions dedicated for girls to play sports. The young athlete could not be more thrilled. "The school made a cricket team and I was selected as captain," shares Fahima. "I plan on leading my team to victory!"

PWS&D empowers women and girls

World Food Day (October 16)

Today, 800 million people worldwide go to bed with an empty stomach. The majority of the world's hungry people are subsistence farmers. These farmers struggle to cultivate plentiful harvests in the midst of a changing climate, which brings unpredictable and extreme weather events that devastate crops. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank's Climate Fund is a way for Canadians to respond to families impacted by climate change. This year, donations to the Climate Fund will support PWS&D's agro-ecological and food security project in Guatemala. The project has been transformative for Catalina, a farmer who received support to adapt to climate change, grow more vegetables and improve her family's nutrition. "I am grateful that we can see another way to live a healthy life," she says.
