100 Classrooms for Afghanistan

About the Campaign

"100 CLASSROOMS FOR AFGHANISTAN" is a fundraising campaign initiated by German NGO Cap Anamur and Germany's international broadcaster Deutsche Welle. The aim is to collect money for the construction of 100 classrooms in the northeastern provinces of Afghanistan.

In order to support the worldwide donation drive "100 CLASSROOMS FOR AFGHANISTAN" Gudrun Wendler initiated a joint German-American effort to collect money for one classroom. The event took place at her Los Feliz Home on December 12, 2003. For this occasion a special edition of 300 prints of her painting AUTUMN was published. In addition to that Gudrun Wendler donated the original painting "Autumn" and several other of her works of art. Many other sponsors also made donations leading to the wonderful result that not only one, but two classrooms can be financed.

The Fundraising Goes On

If you are interested in supporting the campaign you can still purchase these prints, handsigned by the artist, with a certificate attached, for $150 plus mailing costs. Please click here for further information.
