Fundraising Events

The SAWA Committee organises fundraising events such as lunches dinners and films or talks, and welcomes other members and supporters offering to organise an event.

Join us for Lunch in Canberra

The next event is a lunch to be held in Canberra at the Bamiyan Afghan Restaurant in Lonsdale Street, Braddon, on Wednesday, 10 May, 12.30 for 1.00 p.m. start, $60 per head. Find out how to book here: SAWA Lunch Canberra 2023

Run Your Own Event

You may provide a dinner or lunch at home with a restaurant level charge to participants so profit can go to SAWA.

Your book club, Rotary group, Probus group or other local group may organise an event or promote SAWA as part of a regular fundraising program. SAWA NSW is happy to provide a speaker to these groups to provide more detail of what we do.

Your child’s school may be interested in raising awareness of Afghanistan’s great needs and raising funds for SAWA.
