This past summer, high school student Bahara M., Wyoming Seminary '16, was recognized by the United Nations and the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture during the International Youth Day Art Festival in Kabul.  Her short documentary  The First Women's Internet Club was one of the top two finalists in the Concept and Skill category.  
Spring Break for a Cause
During her spring break in March, Narges (standing at right), Muhlenberg College '18, traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana with 12 other students as part of Muhlenberg's Alternative Spring Break Program. The students helped rebuild a house which was destroyed during Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac. Read more about her experience. 
Thank you!
It is with heartfelt gratitude that we bid farewell to two of our committee members who stepped down this year Graham Cole and Kathleen Deignan.  Their guidance and dedication to AGFAF and our students will be greatly missed.  We wish them both the the best as they move on to other endeavors. 
We would like to welcome Alisa Stack (left) to the AGFAF family. Alisa is currently with the US Department of Defense, Senior Executive Service and formerly the Deputy Chief of Staff for ISAF Stability Operations in Kabul.  Alisa's experience with foreign governments and agencies will be an invaluable resource for AGFAF and our students as they prepare to return to Afghanistan during the summers and post college graduation.
