Sahar is the October Spotlight organization for Dining for Women. We are grateful to have found a partner that is committed and passionate about educating Afghan girls. Dining for Women is supporting our Early Marriage Prevention Program with at $50,000 grant.
To learn more about our Early Marriage Prevention Program, please see our program video and our Google Hangouts with Dining for Women Director of Grants and Partnerships, Dr. Veena Khandke. Our fellow advisor Airokhsh Faiz Qaisary talks about the inception of the program, the need in the community, and shares some stories about the Afghan girls that she’s worked with.
In the month of October we will be meeting with Dining for Women groups all over the country – Washington DC, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle. And these are only the ones we have scheduled so far! Looking forward to connecting with the Dining for Women chapters!
