Children Without Borders is a registered non-profit organization founded in Toronto, Ontario. CWB was formed to aid those who suffer in the aftermath of decades of war in Afghanistan. Although primary education is free, many families live in poverty and their children are forced to leave school to provide money for their families. As a result, Afghan communities are suffering and children are forced into adulthood with no formal education. We believe that education is the most important part of a child’s life and with your help we want to give every child in Afghanistan the chance to go to school and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
Nooria, Co-Founder, was born and raised in Kabul, Afghanistan. Due to the war, Nooria and her family were forced to flee and immigrated to Canada, a land of opportunities. As a new immigrant, she adjusted herself well and quickly excelled. She graduated from David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute in 2006.
Nooria’s ambition has always been to assist people hence she chose law as her career. In 2006, she enrolled in the Law Clerk program at Seneca College while working at boutique office, Pace Law Firm. An ambitious person, Nooria was looking for other opportunities, and, as a result was offered a job at Financial Services Commission of Ontario, a government agency, where she worked for approximately 6 months. Currently she works at a boutique personal injury firm, Ristich Law. She commenced serving her own community and other communities with the assistance of senior lawyers at the law firm. Throughout her employment, both Nooria and her firm have helped thousands and have fought for the rights of injured individuals.
Nooria was able to organize multiple successful charity and non-charity events. For instance, in September 2015, Nooria organized a charity event in Toronto where $4,500.00 USD was raised for the victims of suicide attack in Kabul. Due to her continued support to the community, she has received multiple awards. In April 2016, she was awarded with a certificate of appreciation from Afghan Student Association at York.
