"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela
Since 1949 the Christmas Bowl has inspired churches and individuals around Australia to work together and support people who's lives have been torn apart by war. Will you join over 100,000 caring Australians and support the Christmas Bowl Appeal this year?
In Australia, it's easy for us to take the ability to read and write for granted. But sadly, girls in Afghanistan don't have that luxury, living in a country where almost nine out of every ten women are illiterate.
Meet Adela. As a nine year old girl in Afghanistan, Adela is getting an education in the hope of one day becoming a doctor and helping her country. You can help others like Adela look forward to a brighter future. Visit actforpeace.org.au/christmasbowl.
The Christmas Bowl is the Christmas appeal of Act for Peace, the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia and a member of the global ACT Alliance.
