Project PeacePal's student exchanges between New Mexico and Afghanistan were featured in the Albuquerque Journal's Living section on Sunday, July 22, 2012. Read the Journal article about our exciting programs in Afghanistan, including the start of a new school in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, by clicking:
Last week Dr. Robert Fuselier of the Afghan Sister Village Project (ASVP) in Los Alamos and PeacePal staff member Blake Batten returned from Afghanistan after visiting Green Village Schools' Advanced Education Center in Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province. ASVP and PeacePal have been supporting the work of Green Village Schools (GVS) in Helmand, where over the past year the Advanced Education Center provided English and computer/internet education to 250 local girls, boys, and teachers. Students at the center also participated in an internet correspondence program with Los Alamos High School students, promoting mutual understanding across cultures that are seemingly so different. Dr. Fuselier and Blake attended the graduation ceremonies and met with local officials and community members.
Be sure to stop by the friendly PeacePal info table at La Montanita Co-op in Nob Hill this Sunday, April 22 for Earth Day. We'll be there from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM and will be sharing smiles with all!
