From 7-9PM at Acalanes High School, Budd MacKenzie, the founder of the Lafayette-based organization "Trust in Education," will speak about his recent travels to Afghanistan and the gender inequality and discrimination he witnessed there, and inform our community about what we can do to improve the situation overseas.
"Trust in Education" is a grass-roots organization that provides educational, economic, and health care assistance to villages in Afghanistan, while informing Americans and helping them become directly involved with the reconstruction in Afghanistan.
This is the inaugural event of the Acalanes High School Speaker Series (be sure to look for future events featuring a variety of other presenters), which is co-sponsored by the AHS SAGE Club. SAGE is a student-run club at AHS which is now in its second year of raising money to support the education and well-being of Afghan and Pakistani children and their families.
All proceeds go to "Trust in Education" to help the Afghan people rebuild their lives and country.
Please attend this event and help support the reconstruction effort in Afghanistan!
