WHAT: Hear and discuss how we can improve literacy for Afghan girls and women – in the Twin Cities, in Afghanistan and beyond.
WHO: Pashtana Zalmai Khan Durrani, founder of LEARN Afghanistan, and Roya Mahboob, founder & CEO of Digital Citizen Fund – along with students from St. Catherine University, the Midwest’s best all-women’s university.
WHERE: St. Catherine University, 2004 Randolph Ave., on the southwest side of St. Paul. We will carpool there to parking alongside O’Shaughnessy Auditorium for the event there, then walk across the quad to the Coeur de Catherine President’s Room for an action-oriented discussion with students – and a late supper, especially for those ending their Ramadan fast. This location is NOT accessible by light rail or direct bus lines from the University of Minnesota or downtown, so if you want a ride, I need your pick-up location; please email that to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your cell phone number.
WHEN: Thursday, March 30 — 6:00 p.m. for the program at O’Shaughnessy, followed directly by the discussion and refreshments at the Coeur de Catherine President’s Room, ending by 8:30 p.m.
WHY: Because education is a fundamental human right, the underpinning of everything Fulbright does, and we can help revive it for the girls and women of Afghanistan!
HOW: Please reserve your refundable $10 tickets on our PayPal site now. This event is open to the first 25 Fulbrighters who make their reservation on PayPal – the sooner the better, for food-ordering purposes, but the deadline is March 24.
