Afghanistan: Why it Matters

Thank you to those attended our Connex event—Afghanistan: Why it Matters—that took place on October 21, 2021. We were so lucky to have had a trifecta of esteemed panelists and moderator from our school community, and the conversation that ensued was so valuable. This virtual conversation featuring SCH community members: Steve Coll (renowned investigative journalist, author, academic, and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize) and Helena Malikyar (former Afghanistan ambassador to Italy and political commentator) — moderated by Renee Chenault-Fattah (former broadcast journalist).

We would also like to bring to your attention the important work of former SCH parent Maria Aini, who is helping support displaced Afghanistan families that have come through the Philadelphia Airport. Maria has been an angel on the ground, helping with Operation Allies Welcome. She has provided us with her organization’s website if you would like to be a part of helping arriving families get back on their feet in this country: Afghans Rising Initiative.
