Congratulations to the Canadian Federation of University Women and partners for successfully concluding the "WALK TO KABUL" advocacy campaign. The participants made great efforts by walking, running, skiing, and cycling the total distance that it would take to get from Ottawa to Kabul in support of Afghan women's rights in the ongoing peace process. The Embassy thanks all the Canadian friends who joined the campaign in solidarity with Afghan women.
The campaign was an important initiative to encourage International and Canadian support for Afghan women at this critical moment. The Afghan government remains committed to protecting Afghan women's rights and the hard-won gains of the past two decades in the areas of women’s rights and women’s empowerment in Afghanistan.
