Issues facing teachers in Afghanistan

International Teacher Cooperation, a group I am involved with, is hosting an event at UC Davis in California next week. Rona Popal, the Executive Director of the Afghan Coalition, will speak about issues facing education, teachers, and students in Afghanistan. Rona is an Afghan whose organization is well respected in the greater Bay Area for its efforts to help Afghan immigrants to the region as well as provide information to the community about the state building process in Afghanistan.

If you are in the greater Sacramento/ Bay Area, add this event to your calendar.

June 1st, 2011 (Wednesday)
Rona Popal (Afghan Coalition)
202 Wellman, UC Davis Campus (Located next to the Student Union)

ABC News has a piece about Rona’s efforts.

International Teacher Cooperation is currently raising funds for Canadian Women for Afghan Women to provide half a year’s salary to an Afghan teacher. We will be collecting donations to support the organization and teachers in the country at the event.
