A temporary goodbye to Casey!
The Sahar team celebrates our operation manager, Casey Galgon’s, departure for maternity leave. Sahar wishes Casey and husband Ryan the very best as we all welcome the newest addition to the Sahar family: Gemma Ray Ryan!!
Sahar has received two new grants!
Sahar is pleased to announce that we recently received two new grants! The Rotary Club of Seattle 4 and The Girls Rights Foundation in Menlo Park, California both supported our Early Marriage Prevention program. This program provides 1500 girls with education about the challenges of marrying early, legal rights and ways to engage fathers and community members in preventing early marriage. We look forward to the second year of our pilot program.
Airokhsh is off to Afghanistan
Our first Sahar Fellow, Airokhsh Qaisary, is off to visit Sahar’s programs in Afghanistan. She’ll be researching our early marriage program and delivering books to our schools. Airokhsh will return to Boston for graduate studies and continue to assist Sahar with speaking engagements. We are so grateful for her work, and she will be greatly missed in the Seattle office.
