WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PLACE AFGHAN STUDENTS IN THE SECOND ANNUAL
AMERICAN/AFGHANISTAN STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM
PC FoA Friends Salaam,
We are quickly approaching the end of the school year here in Buffalo and in
the Northeast. The end of school also brings to a close the first year of
our historic student exchange with Afghanistan.
Our students, Omer, Zubair and Maiwand have already begun their final exams
and are slowly preparing to return to Kabul and Kandahar. All thirty seven
of their fellow exchange students are also beginning to say their Good byes
and prepare for readjustment in the cities and villages of Afghanistan.
The students for the second year of the program have been selected and they
are from a more diverse geographic area than our first group. We have
students from Bamyian, Mazar-i-Sharif, Pul-i-Khumri, Herat, Kandahar,
Jalalabad as well as from Kabul and the surrounding region.
Please help spread the word about this program. This is an opportunity for
RPCVs to promote Peace Corps' Third Goal by inviting bright and competent
Afghan students into our communities. I can think of no better way to bring
our host culture back to the American public than by hosting the children
and grandchildren of our former Afghan colleagues and students.
I would like to request that current RPCV host parents send a brief message
to FoA about your hosting experience this past year via the above e-address.
Thanks for volunteering again in service to America and Afghanistan.
For information contact me or Terry Dougherty at Samangan72@...
, both of us have had a positive experience with the exchange program and we
can help your school-community work through the bureaucratic steps of this
US Government sponsored program.
