Hi Andy,
Here's what our Outreach group has agreed to present for the NPC Week celebration:
  • February 26, Fashion show with WNY Girls School Coalition at Nardin Academy. This annual activity will benefit the Wonkhai Valley Project in Wardakl Province through the Circle of Women. There is an Orphanage, Schools and a Medical Center that OPHS Outreach and the WNY GSC have very substantially supported, building two schools on the complex grounds. (details to Buffalo PCV by Thursday)
  • February 27, Movie, The Kite Runner. Tentative Site OP Middle School Auditorium. (Possible alternative feature is Kandahar if we receive confirmation from Toronto Filmmaker Nilofer Pariza)
  • March 6, Two tentative sites OPHS Commons and OPMS Cafeteria. (details by Thursday) Afghanistan Awareness Program numbered below:
  1. First Presentation by Bethany Saul regarding the plight of women in Afghanistan today. The Taliban are officially gone but women still suffer arbitrary abuse in Afghanistan.
  2. Second Presentation by Charlotte Saul Outreach President and Tony Agnello Outreach Adviser and President of Friends of Afghanistan outlining projects and programs supported by Outreach since the construction of our first school in 2003 in Kandahar.
  3. The history of Peace Corps in Afghanistan. RPCVs George Deshaies and Tony Agnello. (Artifacts, film, etc.)
  4. Buckets of Love Committee @ OPHS formed.
All of the above increments have been approved by the committee. We are firming up the sites through our regular internal processes. Consider sending the above web site addresses to the Buffalo area RPCVs to take a look at the projects that Outreach and Friends of Afghanistan are working on and ask our RPCVs if they are interested in supporting any of the programs that support Afghan women and children. I'll see you on Thursday, ensh'Allah. (Ojala que si.)
Peace, Tony
