Kids 4 Afghan Kids

Kids4AfghanKids is a non-profit organization in Michigan started by a group of middle school students in Northville with the goal of helping to improve the lives of children in Afghanistan.

Since the organization began in 1998, students along with guidance from their teachers and AAUW-NN donations, have successfully raised funds that have supported the building of three schools, an orphanage, a medical clinic and a community well in the Wonkhai Valley, located three hours from Kabul.

Remember the Ladies

Branch members developed a research project that revealed the Northville and Novi school libraries were short on books about women. The "Remember the Ladies" theme was embraced.

There are now 3 ways to support this project.

  1. Make a monetary donation to support the purchase of books. Checks should be made payable to to either: Northville Public Schools or Novi Community Schools. On the memo line, you can indicate Remember The Ladies Book Project.
  2. Honor a special person by giving the gift of a book. We will insert a nameplate in the book and notify the person you have honored.
  3. Purchase a Remember The Ladies book using this form.

The program has been expanded by branch members who read books donated by our members to students in area schools during National Reading Group Month and Women’s History Month.

Through group and individual donations of $15 or more, books about women and women's history have been donated to the school libraries following the recommendations of each school’s librarian. Over the last several years, additional branch monies have been given to both the Northville Library and the Novi Library to expand their collection of materials related to women.
