The BBC and Safer World Fund both like Sahar's efforts to support education for girls in Afghanistan

Thanks to the BBC the innovative new school for 3,000 girls in Mazari-i-Sharif, Afghaniston, is getting we;cp,e attention. I reported last time about the buzz created in Afghanistan when we officially opened Gohar Khotan. The buzz is now worldwide. The BBC World Service broadcast a live interview of Ginna Brelsford (aka me!) and Dave Miller, the head of the architectural firm that led the design effort, conducted by Dan Damon. Please listen! Just click on the link below. I think you will be especially impressed with some of the design features that Dave talks about.

In addition, the Safer World Fund is now offering a 50% match on contributions via Global Giving to two Sahar projects. To honor loved ones lost on 9/11, the Fund promotes support for education, health and economic opportunity for girls and women in Afghanistan as a way to "counter the sway of extremists and terrorist tactics." They are trying to induce more contributions to Sahar! While funds last, your donation to either of the two projects will be matched, up to a combined limit of $1,500. Links to both projects are below. Just donate as you normally would; the matching is automatic as long as the Safer World Fund logo and notice appears on the project's web page.  

Despite always present security concerns, girls education is alive and well in northern Afghanistan. Your support makes it possible. Thank you so much
