Screening of "WE CAME HOME"

 

image005Afghan-American musician Ariana Delawari shares the unique personal story of how she re-connected with her homeland in this thought provoking documentary. Born and raised in Los Angeles to a loving family that had never forgotten its Afghan roots, Ariana's life is turned upside down after 9/11. When her parents move back to Kabul to help with reconstruction, Delawari spends a decade documenting their transition and her own awakening, through music, to her Afghan heritage. – AP

The Untold Story of Afghan Progress by Saad Mohseni, WSJ


There are over eight million schoolchildren, 2.6 million of them girls. In 2001: 900,000 boys and practically no girls.

Written by: Saad Mohseni | Source: The Wall Street Journal | March 17, 2013, 6:03 p.m. ET

OB-WS552 Mohsen_D_20130317165526
Agence France-Presse/Getty Images-Afghan schoolgirls in Herat, in western Afghanistan, Oct. 13, 2012
The conventional wisdom about Afghanistan runs something like this: The country is a lost cause. Almost nothing has changed. The people remain backward and thankless, and there is little benefit for the international community to stay engaged in the country's future.
